O’s Notes: Chet produced pure warm tones from his trumpet. The notes are well suited for blues and ballads as well as swinging vocals like “My Heart Stood Still”. These 11 songs recorded late in his career serve well as a relaxing set for a long evening drive. And if you take time to zero in from time to time you’ll find that Chet always had some awesome chops!
