Chet Baker and Bill Evans - Alone Together LP+CD
Baker's trumpet gives to this record something that too few performances possess today, thoughtful understatement.
Baker picks his way here with less certainty than he once did, but the sensuous personal tone and the carefully wrought countermelodies are still in evidence and worth hearing.
The rhythm section is a model of superlative musicianship in balance with mature taste. It is a unit that would bring out the best in any player, including the troubled young trumpet player featured here.
