Chet Baker is highly regarded as one of jazz’s greatest trumpet players. He recorded many albums over his 35-year recording career. Recorded in in 1969, Albert's House features 11 instrumental compositions by Steve Allen who produced the recording session to assist Baker in restarting his career after a horrific dental injury in ‘68. The sessions features an all-star group of players with Paul Smith on keyboards, Barney Kessel on guitar, Jim Hughart on bass and Frank Capp (of Wrecking Crew fame) on drums. The album hasn’t ever been re-released for vinyl reissue.
