Chet Baker: Candy

This long unavailable video of Chet Baker playing a relaxed session in the Sonet Record library in Lidingo, Sweden, with the highly compatible support of French pianist Michel Graillier and Belgian bassist Jean-Louis Rassinfosse, is now released on DVD for the first time.

It features not only Chet's sensitive and distinctive interpretations of classic jazz themes by Bud Powell and Miles Davis and great popular music standards by Rogers & Hart, Cole Porter and Mack David, Joan Whitney and Alex Kramer (the title track), but also a guest appearance by Red Mitchell, the celebrated bassist, then resident in Stockholm.

After Red undertakes a short but fascinating interview with Chet, the two join to play a most delightful version of the enduring Rodgers & Hart ballad, "My Romance".

This session has been described by American reviewer J. Hughes as Chet Baker's finest recording and performance in jazz trio setting. He adds, "These musicians find the same wave-length and attack this repertoire with poignant spontaneity and amazing improvisation."
