Chet Baker - In New York (1998) Retail CD
At a time when the merits of West Coast "cool jazz" and East Coast "hard bop" were being hotly debated, the seemingly innocuous title of this album, Chet Baker In New York, spoke volumes. Chet--whose cool trumpet epitomised the subdued, romantic sound of West Coast jazz--was heading East to blow with the hot tenor sax of Johnny Griffin and the hard-swinging tandem of Paul Chambers on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums. The results on this 1958 reissue are both instructive and enjoyable. The rhythm section pushes Baker to play with uncharacteristic vigour on Miles Davis's "Solar", whereas Bakermore…'s command on ballads such as "When Lights Are Low" prompts Griffin to expose his more melancholy leanings. Mostly, though, this is a solid, mid-tempo blowing session, characteristic of the era. In retrospect it makes the West Coast/East Coast debate seem a bit over-blown, if not altogether irrelevant. --Wally Shoup
