Chet Baker – She Was Too Good to Me {SONY} “Masterworks Jazz”


Review from “chetbakertribute.com”

Besides being a great recording, this one also has some historical significance, as it is viewed by many as Chet’s “comeback” album. Although Baker recorded in the late sixties, they were really dreadful commercial albums. This is the first significant recording Chet made since the ’65 Prestige sessions. It also marks the beginning of a very successful association with Creed Taylor and CTI Records. Chet recorded some of best work for CTI in the mid-to-late 1970’s.
Bob James’ electric piano and some strings (just the right amount) give this CD a unique flavor.
