The roller-coaster career of trumpeter Chet Baker included an early rise to fame during the mid-1950s, beginning with his key role in the Gerry Mulligan Quartet. That period included much popular success as a singer. Accordingly, his four-album stay with Riverside at the end of that decade began with a record that, although it does include some instrumental solos, focuses primarily on his vocals. Like most of Baker's Riverside work, this is an uneven album, but it features some strong support by pianist Kenny Drew, and on the most successful numbers (among them three Rodgers & Hart compositions) offers clear indication of Chet's individuality and effectiveness.

Do It the Hard Way, I'm Old Fashioned, You're Driving Me Crazy, It Could Happen to You, My Heart Stood Still, The More I See You, Everything Happens to Me, Dancing on the Ceiling, How Long Has This Been Going On?, Old Devil Moon, plus CD bonus tracks While My Lady Sleeps (take 10), You Make Me Feel So Young (take 5)

with Kenny Drew, George Morrow, Sam Jones, Philly Joe Jones, Dannie Richmond
