Chet Baker's 'She Was Too Good To Me' is definitely a keeper

Bookmark and Share

Chet Baker's She Was Too Good To Me is definitely a keeper. The 'Autumn Leaves' cut is top notch and his playing overall is a demonstration of his best. This Baker compilation from CTI Records is much appreciated from this listener. It's a CD that I intend to wear out a few times through the years. This CD review only missed the five stars because it had one too many vocal cuts - just never could get into Chet Baker's voice, unless it was sandwiched within extended trumpet/flugelhorn work.
