Chet Baker – Silent Nights

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Silent Nights starts mellow and picks up the pace halfway through, after Baker’s breathy “Nobody Knows The Trouble I Have Seen.” It would have been nice to see the trumpeter make something more of these (mostly) typical Christmas tunes, but he plays it safe, holding most of these songs to under four minutes, leaving little room for improvisation. Even so, Silent Nights is a relaxed, reflective half hour of brassy holiday horn playing, certainly worth a yearly listen. (AllAboutJazz).
