  • The lyricism of Chet Baker, one of the most important post-war trumpet player, cannot be doubted because Chet in his musical expressions remains as singer and musicians essentially romantic. He fits beautifully into a context created around him and for him, a context that finds in the sonority of his trumpet or in the opacity of his voice a leading element, dominator and at the same time attractive and fascinating. Chet with the valid help of the two arrangers Ezio Leoni and Giulio Libano has found a fusion of language related to the expression and atmosphere, it’s difficult to find flaws or mistakes in this album.

    The songs on this record are aimed to everyone: jazz fans and those who are not very familiar with jazz. Chet has overcome the barrier that normally divides the two classes of purchasers for the vinyl, he has been able to link, without however giving up a millimeter from what are his fundamental canons of expression, the romantic line of the bows and his introvert and precise jazz expression. For Ezio Leoni and Giulio Libano the work ground with Chet has been smoothed out: there was no need to build beyond the measure, it was important to expand, enhance, galvanize what Chet wanted to express.
