Availability: In Stock

Few musicians have embodied the romantic, and ultimately tragic, jazz figure as totally as Chesney “Chet” Baker (1929-88). Unschooled yet eloquent in his music, the Baker mystique has only reinforced one of the most haunting trumpet styles and ingenuous approaches to jazz singing. The Legendary Riverside Albums is a collection that features four legendary Chet albums released in the late ‘50s on Riverside Records, plus a bonus LP with choice outtakes and alternates from Baker’s Riverside sessions. Produced by Nick Phillips, the vinyl box includes six 180-gram LPs pressed at RTI and cut from the original analog master tapees by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio. The four classic titles feature faithfully replicated artwork printed on tip-on record jackets and the bonus disc comes in a deluxe gatefold printed on reverse board. The high-end package also contains a 16-page booklet filled with photos, and new insightful liner notes by jazz historian Doug Ramsey, plus a collectible Melvin Sokolsky photo print in a glycine pouch. The contents are housed in a striking linen-wrapped slipcase with foil stamped art.
