Live (Belgium 1964). Very few jazz musicians attempted to perform as instrumentalist and singer. Apart from Louis Armstrong, whose singing, though fascinating, was rarely considered beautiful, Chet Baker was one of the handful who was successful with both voice and trumpet. Notice the smooth, unembellished presentation of the first verse by voice followed by the ornamented improvisation on his flugelhorn – an instrument similar to a trumpet, but with a richer, softer, and darker tone than that of a trumpet. Baker’s singing was never flashy, but smoldered with a sensuality that made him unique.
