On a Misty Night

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Chet Baker was quite busy during three days in August 1965, recording five LPs worth of material with tenor saxophonist George Coleman formerly with Miles Davis, pianist Kirk Lightsey, bassist Herman Wright and drummer Roy Brooks. Baker, sticking to flugelhorn, is heard in fine form on this CD reissue, which along with Stairway to the Stars and Lonely Star brings back all of the music in full; each CD also contains all of the liner notes from the five original albums.

For this particular reissue, the quintet performs six likable originals by Richard Carpenter, Jimmy Mundy's "Sleeping Susan," three Tadd Dameron tunes, and a Sonny Stitt blues. Most of the selections are taken at relaxed tempos, but it is the hottest number, "Go-Go," that is most memorable.
