New Unreleased Chet: Live In  Palermo 1976

Import-only live archive release from the Jazz great. Contains a complete never before heard live set by Chet, recorded in a quartet format in Palermo, Italy, with local musicians. Featured on piano, Enzo Randisi plays beautifully here in his only recordings with Chet, and one of his very few recordings on piano (his primary instrument was the vibraphone). Among the many highlights are tunes not usually heard by Chet, like 'Blue n' Boogie' (played here in a medley with 'Buzzy', which was equally elusive in Baker's discography) and, above all, a poignant version of 'I Can't Get Started', a ballad he only rarely recorded.

Songs: Personnel Details:
Solar
There Will Never Be Another You
Milestones
My Funny Valentine
But Not For Me
I Can't Get Started
Blues 'n' Boogie- Buzzy
Personnel: Enzo Randisi, Giovanni Tommaso, Gianni Cavallaro

New Release Of The Rare  SESJUN Radio Shows  By T2 Entertaimnet
 Purchase Here

This 2 CD set pulls together 15 unreleased tracks from five different live performances by Chet Baker on Dutch radio between 1976 and 1985. There is a nice variety of moods presented here, thanks to the mix of musicians and instruments featured in each set. For example, the first set features trumpet and vocals by Baker, backed by flute, piano, and bass, while another set has him backed with vibraphone, bass, and drums. Central to it all is Baker, who is in top form throughout, executing his performance with his unique calm and cool, West Coast style. The sound quality is excellent, sure to please any fan of live jazz. 

The disc is the first in a series of live performances on the Tros Sesjun radio program that ran from 1973 to 2004 in the Netherlands. Future releases will include Gerry Mulligan, Stan Getz, Bill Evans, Clark Terry, and others.
