  • Recorded two years before Chet Baker's death in 1988, CHET IN CHICAGO captures the legendary trumpeter during a return visit to his native soil (Baker spent most of the last two decades of his life in Europe). Although problems with deteriorating health had affected Baker's playing in the `70s, he had recaptured some of his glorious tone in the `80s, and his work on CHET IN CHICAGO is lyrical and expressive. Baker is flanked by pianist Bradley Young, drummer Rusty Jones, and bassist Larry Gray, who provide taut, agile support, while saxophonist Ed Peterson adds fire to the more uptempo tracks. These include a vigorous take on Charlie Parker's "Ornithology," among other surprises. But the king of cool still shines on ballads, and does so here on "We'll Be Together Again" and his signature "My Funny Valentine." Unreleased until 2008, CHET IN CHICAGO is a winning document of late-period Baker.
Professional Reviews
Down Beat (p.76) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Baker is at his best on the ballads, and his lyricism is made apparent right up front with his slow introduction to 'Old Devil Moon.'"
