Wednesday, December 5th at 9pm:
The Jazz Record Art Collective is proud to present the first of two nights of Chet Baker with the Christy Bennett Quintet performing Baker’s debut vocal album, Chet Baker Sings, released in 1954.
“The best introduction to Baker's voice is the 1954 album Chet Baker Sings, the first one devoted entirely to his singing. Like an earlier Chet Baker album in this "Getting Into Jazz series," it featured pianist/composer Russ Freeman. Some of the trumpet solos on this disc are very beautiful, and so the most interesting tracks are those where Baker has time to stretch out and play a few choruses in addition to vocalizing.”

Art Davis - Trumpet
Dennis Luxion - Piano
Joe Policastro - Bass
