    Looking for all the chet baker with a guitarist prominent. I made a playlist chet baker with guitar on spotify. So i know of most of the steeplechase stuff anything else.

    Im from Oklahoma. So learned of chet early from family He really is one of our musical treasures. and people are proud he is from here. be damned the critics and what anyone says about the Man. You can’t fuck with that phrasing.

    as with barney kessel and charlie christian getting his start here. Our little hick state has some jazz players from here.

    But that’s pretty much in every genre of music. We got some real idots no doubt. but i was writing out charts in my spare time at work in the break room and a couple of lady co workers ex band nerds from the back in the day were reading them upside down. And making fun of my jody fisher book ive carried everywhere for 15 years. Nothing really to do here.

    By Steeplechase, I assume you mean the stuff with Doug Raney? Man I love that stuff.

    Chet did some records with Philip Catherine, Chet's Choice is on Criss Cross, probably the easiest to track down. Great record.

    Did chet ever cross paths with charlie byrd. Just the stan getz connection got me wondering.

    I dont think so...I think Chet was in Europe too often.

    Chet's Back has Rene Thomas, and the album entitled "Chet" has Kenny Burrell...I think "Baby Breeze" does too, iirc...

    I found a good Chet CD called "Hallucinations", that features some great playing by Rene Thomas on it. It was recorded live in Cantina/Bologna 15/4/1962.
    A funny story about Chet- I was talking to a Guyanese teacher at the HS I used to teach music at, and when she found out I was into jazz she said to me, "Oh, you play jazz? Did you ever hear of my father? His name was Chet Baker"(!).
    After I regained my composure, I asked her about life with Chet. She said that she didn't see him very much...

    I went to school with one of Stan Getz's sons. Guess what he said? "I didn't get to see him very much."

    After reading Getz' biography, I'd say his son was better off that way...

    There's a Baker lp w Barney Kessel, "Albert's House", but it's largely forgettable and I don't believe Barney solos.
    As a matter of fact I couldn't even tell he was on the recording.

    yo sgcim, that Hallucinations lp sounds interesting, is it the same personnel as the Chet is Back lp?
    Same time frame as when Chet was playing w Thomas, Bobby Jaspar, etc....

    Do not under any circumstances get ‘Albert’s House’. It ranks as one of the worst Chet Baker LPs ever, along with the ones he did with the ‘Mariachi Brass’.

    No, this one has Geo. Gruntz on piano, K.T. Geyer on Bass, and Eberhard Stengel on drums. The cuts are:
    Our Delight
    Solar
    Pennies From Heaven
    Donna Lee
    Hallucinations
    IMHO, Rene was playing at his best during this time period, and the Live album he made with the Bobby Jaspar Quartet at Ronnie Scott's in 1962 was my fave RT. Great Jaspar, too.

    agreed, quite awful. I remember seeing it in the stores back in the day and was intrigued because Kessel is supposedly on it. glad I passed...

    David ‘Buck’ Wheat plays nylon string on Chet’s album Embraceable You recorded in 1958 but only released in 1995. I believe the story is that Chet arrived at the session so late most of the musicians had gone home so it ended up being recorded with just guitar, bass and Chet.
