Chet Baker: She Was Too Good For Me

I’m very selective when it comes to jazz artists, but Chet Baker is one of my favorites. What I love most about his music is precisely what he is often criticized for – his voice. Chet’s warm, subtle croon and skillful trumpet playing are exhibited splendidly in She Was Too Good For Me. Originally released in 1974 and viewed by some as Chet’s great “comeback,” the classic album has been remastered by CTI Records for its new 40th anniversary edition. Beginning with a lovely rendering of “Autumn Leaves,” this moody and romantic collection remains one of Chet’s best.
