chet baker Chet Baker Sings (pink vinyl 3 LP set, £24.50)
He was the epitome of cool... the possessor of the kind of looks that usually only featured in the most elegant of Hollywood movies. He also played the trumpet in a way that transcended jazz boundaries, and won him countless admirers among those who didn't normally stoke their hi-fis with bebop sounds. This 3 LP set, featuring tracks cut during Chet Baker's peak years, illustrates that whatever the critics argued about in their various discourses regarding his vocal delivery, there could be no criticism of the material with which he became associated.
