The Early Years


A primary exponent of the West Coast sound during the 1950s, Chet Baker matched this achievement with a secondary career as a singer, achieving considerable fame and success. However, it was as a jazz trumpeter that he first made his name, winning his first Downbeat poll in 1948 and then making the key recordings that launched the West Coast movement, with the Lighthouse Allstars and then Gerry Mulligan. This 4CD set includes tracks that illustrate the meteoric rise to fame that Baker experienced from the late '40s through to around 1952 when the Mulligan quartet was in full flight. This is one of the first Properbox sets to be issued in new slimline packaging - half the thickness of the original sets but with all the same information and produced to the same exceptional quality.
