Chet Baker: Summertime

Chet Baker has always been one of my favorite jazz musicians. His relaxed and melancholy music instantly puts your restless spirit at ease. His trumpet playing is only matched by his wistful vocals that have produced critically acclaimed albums.

“Summertime” is a great cover by Baker. Just as John Coltrane and Paul Desmond have done their own interpretation of this song Baker puts his easygoing style to it. Check it out above.
