Chet Baker: Chet in Germany



These “lost” recordings were all made in Germany in the latter half of the 1950’s, first as Chet was reaching his peak of popularity worldwide, then later as his career started to falter. There is some poignancy in addition to the rarity attached to some of these recordings, as some feature pianist Dick Twardzik in performance shortly before his death from a drug overdose. Nevertheless, there is some truly fine playing to be found in these grooves. Total Time: 33 minutes
