CD Reviews

One of Chet's best
Matthew | Green Bay, WI | 11/29/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The tracks from this record were recorded while Chet was in Italy in the earlier 60's. Although these tracks have been rereleased in other versions ("Chet is Back", "The Italian Sessions") which includes more material from the session, this record has a different sound to it. The newer versions take away the reverb which gives this CD such a "live" and immediate sound, which gives the sound a lot of space and depth. The songs themselves are beautiful, and the rhthym section playing with him here is top notch, although unknown. Really sensitive playing, with the best version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" you'll probably ever hear. Chet and the band really pull out on the stops for "Blues in the Closet" as a great closer. Casual fans of Chet might want to pick up one of the more recent (and available) versions of the record, but I prefer the sound here best."
