  3. Thank you very much for this Chet Baker =)
    Here is something for you, if you want:

  4. Chet fue un musico impresionante y genial. No habrĂ¡ otro como el. Un sentido de la delicadeza total, un sonido exquisito y un sentido melodico y armonico originalisimo.

  5. I HAVE DOZENS OF CHET CDS, BUT wanted this one because I bought a T-shirt with this album on it. Be damned if I could find it until now. THANKS!


  6. the "obscure italian sidemen" on this album are led by the great Piero Umiliani. Look him up, one of my favourite composers of all time

  7. Thank you for the comment. I actually know the name of Piero Umiliani and have heard some of his work. I did not realize that he was playing on this; if that is true, that's really cool. I don't know if you are correct about it, though, AMG does not list him as one of the players. Did he do the arrangements, maybe?
