Chet Baker - Sings...It Could Happen To You (1958)
Every trumpet player is really a singer...they just sing thru their instrument but on "It Could Happen To You" Chet actually uses his voice!
This album is way too cool and relaxed.......lounge meets cool jazz ! On this album Chet picked 10 standards of the day and used his voice as a trumpet! But there are no "Bla Bla's or nonsense syllables here just Chets soft voice singing as if he was playing trumpet .
