Few musicians have embodied the romantic—and ultimately tragic—jazz figure as totally as Chesney “Chet” Baker (1929–88). Unschooled yet eloquent in his music, and a fast liver who survived for nearly six decades, the Baker mystique has only reinforced one of the most haunting trumpet styles and ingenious approaches to jazz singing. By the end of the 1950s, when Baker signed a four-album deal with the New York–based label Riverside, Baker had become known for his trademark West Coast “cool jazz” style. However, his Riverside recordings—which pair the artist with some of the best East Coast players—demonstrate Baker’s versatility as a modern trumpeter who could play with even the hardest boppers.

The artist’s 1958 release for Riverside offers a modern take on standards like “Old Devil Moon,” “You’re Driving Me Crazy” and “How Long Has This Been Going On?Chet Baker Sings is unique in that the nimble artist sets aside his trumpet in several of the tracks, using only his vocals—and even scatting the instrumental solos. Baker is backed by the great Philly Joe Jones and Dannie Richmond on drums, Kenny Drew on piano and George Morrow and Sam Jones on bass.

Called “An essential title in Chet Baker’s 30-plus year canon” by AllMusic, this inventive album has been remastered from the original mono tapes by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio and pressed on 180-gram vinyl at RTI. Originally released in both mono and stereo, this reissue—limited to 2,500 and housed in a tip-on jacket—marks the first U.S. mono reissue of the album.
