Chet Baker Chet Baker Sings: It Could Happen To You (Vinyl Reissue)
Release Date: March 5, 2021
Label: Craft Recordings
Few musicians have embodied the romantic, and ultimately tragic, jazz figure as totally as Chesney “Chet” Baker (1929-88).
Unschooled yet eloquent in his music, the Baker mystique has only reinforced one of the most haunting trumpet styles and ingenuous approaches to jazz singing. Chet’s classic 1958 vocal album features “I’m Old Fashioned,” “My Heart Stood Still,” and “Everything Happens To Me.” The reissue has been cut from the original analog master tapes by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio and pressed on 180-gram vinyl at RTI. The classic title features faithfully replicated artwork printed on a tip-on record jacket.
