The Legendary Riverside Albums (180 Gram 5-LP Box Set)
Few musicians have embodied the romantic, and ultimately tragic, jazz figure as totally as Chesney “Chet” Baker (1929-88). Unschooled yet eloquent in his music, the Baker mystique has only reinforced one of the most haunting trumpet styles and ingenuous approaches to jazz singing. The Legendary Riverside Albums is a collection that features four legendary Chet albums released in the late ‘50s on Riverside Records, plus a bonus LP with choice outtakes and alternates from Baker’s Riverside sessions. Features jazz legends Bill Evans, Kenny Burrell, Johnny Griffin, Paul Chambers, Philly Joe Jones & others.
