Four of Chet Baker’s most beloved albums from the late ’50s are being reissued on vinyl this year.

Craft Recordings is repressing the jazz legend’s catalogue with the renowned Riverside record label between 1958 and 1959.

Those four albums are (Chet Baker Sings) It Could Happen to You, Chet Baker in New York, Chet and Chet Baker Plays the Best of Lerner and Loewe.

Each album was cut from its original analog master tapes and has been pressed on 180-gram vinyl.

These individually reissued records follow 2019’s five-LP deluxe vinyl box set, The Legendary Riverside Albums. Called a “must-have” by JazzTimes, that collection featured the four albums plus a bonus disc of outtakes and alternates.

After years of collaborating with West Coast players and developing his trademark “cool jazz” style in Los Angeles, Baker brought his sound to Riverside’s New York studio and hooked up with some of the biggest jazz musicians on the East Coast.
