Chet BAKER - Smokin' with The Chet Baker Quintet 1966


Chet BAKER - Smokin' with The Chet Baker Quintet 1966
P 7449

Jazz

One of five albums Baker recorded with the same hard-driving quintet (tenor-saxophonist George Coleman, pianist Kirk Lightsey, bassist Herman Wright and drummer Roy Brooks) for Prestige within a short period of time, these sessions let one know he could break through his "cool" image by playing heated bop when he wanted to. It also finds him debuting on fluegelhorn and the softer tone of the horn fit his introverted sound well.
