Chet Baker - The Touch of Your Lips

This was the perfect setting during his later years. The trumpeter (who also sings on two of the six songs) sounds very relaxed and comfortable while accompanied by the duo of guitarist Doug Raney and bassist Niels Pedersen, taking some consistently lyrical solos on the six standards.

HERE YOU'RE AGAIN!!! Hi and thanks for this wonderful Chet album. Really I'm not a CB fan but I've found somewhere about 250 albums (the complete discography?) on a torrent. Obviously never herd to everything but for sure I think this is one of the best albums of the late Baker! THANKS for this one and for Your amazing work! Astonishing in quality and quantity.
One of the best musical blogs at all, no doubt about it!

SEE YOU LYM

Thanks Mel, not only for this great Chet, but also for the late, lamented, one of a kind Doug Raney, left us all too early just a few days ago.
