The best of Chet Bakers last few years.
Phillip J. Olsson | Peoria Heights, Il United States | 08/27/2008

"Japanese television did the taping, airing it as a special. The complete concert is on the "Chet Baker in Tokyo" 2 CD set.
Of the best of Chet's years early and late (some of the in between was a few notes to buy drugs), this is my very favorite album. There are times he is as soft as a low flute, and other rifs that blaze for half or more of the head or bridge. On "Stella by Starlight" I had to transcribe the solo as it was so amazing to me, and such a different rif.
If you want the music, get the CD, but if you are really into the best of Chet, the DVD is a must too. Enjoy!"
