Album Review

Baker, Chet Quartet – “Jazz At Ann Arbor” – [Pacific Jazz]

Cousin Mary   5/11/2016   12-inch, Jazz

Pacific Jazz was known for cool West Coast jazz and released 12″ albums from 1955 to 1957 – this was the third. Chet Baker’s trumpet is in fine form in this live recording from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor and is joined by terrific side men. I especially liked Line for Lyons, Headline, and Russ Job.

After Charlie Parker worked with Baker on the West Coast, he went back to New York and told musicians “There’s a little white cat on the coast who’s gonna eat you up”.
