The William Claxton Collection, Compilation, Stereo, Mono, 180 gram vinyl LP in Gatefold packaging In his dual role as a trumpeter and as a singer, Chet was one of the undisputed masters of the jazz ballad able to reach climaxes of intense feeling and intimacy. What better to illustrate this LP that two photographs of Chet with a lover on the cover, girlfriend Liliane Cukier in Hollywood 1955 and inside, with his wife, Halema Alli in Redondo Beach, 1956. The photographs of William Claxton define the essence of cool – his stunningly intimate images of icons like Chet Baker combine technical innovation and an unerring sense of the moment to forge a singular aesthetic he defined as ‘jazz for the eyes’ - Jason Ankeny (AllMusic)

Limited Edition, Reissue, Stereo, 180 gram vinyl LP in Gatefold packaging Chet Baker recorded Chet Is Back! on January 5, 1962, just three weeks after having been released from his drug-related imprisonment in Italy. He was accompanied on the LP by a number of highly talented European players, among them two Belgian stars: tenor saxophonist, flutist and composer Bobby Jaspar, and guitarist René Thomas. Both musicians had their own drug problems (Jaspar would die from a heart attack on February 28, 1963, at the age of 37; Thomas would follow on January 3, 1975, aged 47). Baker didn’t sing on this album, which features him performing spirited trumpet solos. Matt Collar gave the LP a four-star rating in AllMusic Guide. “Recorded in Italy in 1962,” wrote Collar, “Chet Is Back! showcases the ‘cool’ trumpeter cutting loose on such bop-oriented workouts as ‘Pent-Up House’ and ‘Well, You Needn’t’. Backed skillfully by a young cadre of up-and-coming European musicians, including the stellar saxophonist Bobby Jaspar, Chet Baker may have never sounded better, including the ballads. One listen to ‘Over the Rainbow’ and it’s clear this is an overlooked Baker classic.”

Jazz Hard Bop

Chet Baker and Bill Evans, two perennial jazz stars who only rarely recorded together. By the time this album was made, Chet was known as much for his singing as for his trumpet playing. This LP, however, is entirely instrumental and consists of nine ballads performed in the styles of hard bop to cool jazz.

Limited Edition, Reissue. The William Claxton Collection. 180 Pure Vinyl LPs in Gatefold Packaging. Chet Baker Sings is the debut vocal album by jazz musician Chet Baker, released in 1954 by Pacific Jazz Records. In 2001, the album received the Grammy Hall of Fame Award. It's difficult to decide whether Chet Baker was a trumpet player who sang or a singer who played trumpet but this cover centers on his singing, ideal for the titled album. Shot in Los Angeles, in February 15th, 1954 during the recording of the album itself. Inside we see another photo taken during the recording of the same album, this time in March 7th, 1955. The photographs of William Claxton define the essence of cool – his stunningly intimate images of icons like Chet Baker combine technical innovation and an unerring sense of the moment to forge a singular aesthetic he defined as ‘jazz for the eyes’ - Jason Ankeny (AllMusic).
