Chet Baker - Mr B (RSD 2020)
LP - black vinyl
Release date: on sale online from 18.00 hours August 29th
Eight sublime tunes that bring out the more intimate and touching aspects of the Chet Baker sound, a fantastic session where the master plays his themes with an almost religious surrender.There is a sadness permeating the trumpeter's sound throughout…a deep and touching beauty can be felt, marking this as one of Chet's best from the period.
