Chesney Henry Baker Jr was more than just a trumpet player.
He was so many things to so many people. To some, a Bix
Beiderbecke for the post-bebop generation, forever creating
lyrical phrases that sometimes jumped for joy, or opting for a
melancholy beauty, so sad you could almost hear the tears
falling. To others he was a flawed Hollywood hero, a face that
set him apart from the usual run of 52nd Street icons; a From
Here To Eternity Montgomery Clift or James Dean in headhung
frustration in Rebel Without A Cause. Released in 1959
the Chet album proved to be one of the trumpet star’s last
offerings before heading back to Europe for what would
become know as the Milano sessions.
