Chet Baker In New York (Bonus Tracks)

Chet Baker In New York by Chet Baker
Released: Jan 1958
Label: Fantasy Records
Baker was stoned out of his mind during his entire late 1950s NYC tenure, so that may explain why his usually warm tone is thin and lines are herky-jerky. That said, this is still a pretty solid session, thanks to a tight ensemble (Philly Joe Jones, Paul Chambers, Al Haig and hard-hitting sax marvel Johhny Griffin) that works well together.
