  • This 1989 release is a compilation of several dates Baker recorded with pianist and music director, Russ Freeman, in the early to mid '50s. Baker and Freeman were two of the pioneers of the post-war, West Coast "cool" sound. However, On SINGS FROM LET'S GET LOST, Baker's trumpet style is warm and intimate. Moreover, his boyish, Oklahoman accent adds a cozy, and, at times, whimsical freedom to the music.
  • Baker's mellifluous approach to jazz has made him one of the great ballad kings. His versions of "My Funny Valentine" and "I Get Along Without You Very Well," have been hailed as definitive renditions. On these tunes, Baker croons with a drowsy melancholy, but never sounds lethargic or lazy. Instead, he's able to emotionally charge the lyrics, making them resonate deeply with listeners. A great storyteller, Baker's laments on LET'S GET LOST are timeless.
