Digitally remastered On this 1959 release Chet Baker and company perform intimate renditions of such memorable tunes as "I Could Have Danced all Night," from My Fair Lady, and "Almost Like Being in Love," from Brigadoon. Perhaps the most endearing selection on the album is the haunting ballad, "I Talk to the Trees," from Paint Your Wagon, which features a melancholy solo from Baker, and a soft-spoken but gritty tenor solo by the great Zoot Sims. "Show Me" (also from My Fair Lady), is marked by the sparse yet melodic jabs of the great pianist Bill Evans. Baker himself improvises in an uncharacteristically outspoken manner on this track, and Herbie Mann and Zoot Sims both perform blazing solos on flute and alto sax respectively. Teen drummer Clifford Jarvis shines on all eight tracks, playing with the maturity of one more than twice his age. On this downbeat set, Baker and troupe add charm, even potency, to these Lerner and Loewe chestnuts. Personnel: Chet Baker (trumpet); Herbie Mann (flute); Zoot Sims (tenor saxophone); Pepper Adams (baritone saxophone); Clifford Jarvis (drums). Bill Evans, Bob Corwin (piano); Earl May (bass).
