1965’s Baker’s Holiday finds the jazz legend Chet Baker paying homage to the music of Billie Holiday on flugelhorn and vocals with first-rate accompaniment from Everett Barksdale (guitar), Richard Davis (bass), Hank Jones (piano), Connie Kay (drums) and an astute reed section. With elegant arrangements by Jimmy Mundy and a bygone big band feel, the 10-song set includes potent tributes to Lady Day fare like “Easy Living,” “Mean To Me” and “These Foolish Things (Remind Me Of You)” among others.
