Overview

Although it is not obvious from the cover of this 1997 CD, all 12 selections from Chet Baker's Pacific Jazz period are currently available elsewhere (although a few are only on Mosaic limited-edition box sets). The material is almost random and is not programmed in chronological order. Baker takes vocals on five numbers, including three from a 1957 session in which he was accompanied by just guitar and bass, and the emphasis throughout is on concise, melodic interpretations. There is just music on this ballad-oriented set (most notably "My Old Flame," "Lullaby of the Leaves," and "My Ideal"), but overall, this is just a so-so sampler of Chet Baker's early period.
