Editors’ Notes Producer Creed Taylor wisely avoided trying to shoehorn Chet Baker into the slick, fusion-oriented mid-'70s CTI Records sound. Fronting an all-star combo featuring Bob James' twinkling electric piano and Paul Desmond's lyrical alto sax, Baker remains true to his eternally hip '50s sides, tackling a bouncy, gently swinging "Autumn Leaves" and a cool, cerebral take on Hubert Laws' "Funk In Deep Freeze." Baker's two airy vocals, the wistful title track and the haunted "What'll I Do," testify to his gentle way with a ballad.
