This is my go to album/CD/file
Chet Baker, "Chet", is the most beautiful jazz album ever made. Soulful, melancholy, and still. I am using the music on my website:
Ahhh yes...dear old Chet!
Every single time I had a girl over during my single years, if it moved into the bedroom, I would play some Chet Baker. Magical results.
Here are some of my favorite Chet Baker albums:
Chet Baker - The Route (aka Playboys) feat. Art Pepper (going out of print)
Chet Baker - Chet Is Back! (Out of Print - get it if you see it cheap!)
They all sound pretty darn good too!
I first discovered Chet Baker through the Bruce Webber film "lets get lost" at some art-house theater, half-drunk on red wine with a gaggle of friends. We were all blown away by his story, the music, and the film. I had no idea who he was before I stepped into that theater.
I've been looking for the album 'The Incredible Plays and Sings' everywhere online, and I can't find a high quality version of it! I have a 192 CBR MP3 version of the album, but I want much higher quality. The album was originally released in 1977 on vinyl. I'm looking for MP3 256 or higher, preferably FLAC. The song 'Autumn Leaves' with Ruth Young is my favorite, so even that track alone in high quality would satisfy me. I'm in Canada. If anyone has any suggestions, they would be greatly appreciated.
