After a two year absence from the studio (most of that time spent in an Italian
jail) Chet's return could not have been more triumphant. He quiets all notions
that he is a "has been" with his fiery delivery as he swings with a great
Italian band. His version of "Rainbow" is one of the prettiest things you'll
ever hear. This is arguably his best recording of the 1960's.
"Recorded in Italy in 1962, Chet Is Back! showcases the "cool" trumpeter
cutting loose on such bop-oriented workouts as "Pent-Up House" and "Well, You
Needn't." Backed skillfully by a young cadre of up-and-coming European
musicians, including the stellar saxophonist Bobby Jaspar, Chet Baker may have
never sounded better, including on the ballads. One listen to "Over the Rainbow"
and it's clear this is an overlooked Baker classic." - Matt Collar,
