Not perfect, but if the price is right, grab it...

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This compilation of Baker tracks recorded between 1955 and '65 is a nice overview of his work in that decade. The only two weak selections are "I'll Remember April" and "Everytime We Say Goodbye" which feature vocals by Caterina Valente, whose jazz talents do not impress. Frankly, if I want singing on a Chet Baker disc, I'd rather he do it himself, because he was pretty good at it. This CD only allows him one vocal, "The Touch of Your Lips." I found my copy in a bargain bin, and I skip the Valente numbers, which are back-to-back, and revel in the other 13."
