"I don't know whether I'm a trumpet player who sings or a singer who plays the trumpet," Chet Baker once said in an interview. This 10 CD box includes 17 of his original LPs. They present Baker both as a singer and a trumpeter, and make it clear with every whispered note why he was the epitome of West Coast "cool jazz". Born Chesney Baker in CD Yale, Oklahoma, in December 1929, he started playing the trumpet as a teen-ager in California, where the family had relocated in 1940. After serving in the Army, Chet moved to Los Angeles in 1952, where he worked with Charlie Parker and soon joined Gerry Mulligan in his celebrated pianoless quartet. His career, marred by drug abuse and imprisonment, has become the stuff of legends, celebrated in films like Bruce Weber's "Let's Get Lost" or a new biopic starring Ethan Hawke.
