Although his movie-star looks and drug-marred personal life may have drawn attention away from his talents as a trumpet player and singer there is no doubting that Chet Baker was a key artist, maybe the most significant, on the West Coast Jazz scene of the Fifties. This compilation captures Chet Baker in the first decade of his career when he was at the height of his powers, refining and defining the West Coast Jazz scene of the Fifties, and features him working with some of Jazz's great artists such as Gerry Mulligan, Art Pepper, Max Roach, Russ Freeman, Zoot Sims, and many more.
