Chet Baker with Fifty Italian Strings

Chet Baker with Fifty Italian Strings by Chet Baker
Released: Oct 1959
Label: Fantasy Records
Baker's star was already diminishing when he cut this swank orchestral set, which mixes his dreamy ballad style with instrumentals that feature his concise, highly melodic trumpet work. Highlights include "Forgetful," the peerless Vernon Duke number "Autumn in New York," and a swinging, upbeat spin through "Street of Dreams" (one of the first tunes written about junkies).
