Chet Baker - Live In Tokyo - June 14, 1987 Hearing Chet Baker's 1987 live set feels like snagging a ticket to an intimate performance for the brokenhearted. A dusky "Stella By Starlight" opens the show, before Baker's muted trumpet lines and hushed voice usher in a lonesome vibe on Elvis Costello's sorrowful ballad "Almost Blue" and the low-key "I'm A Fool To Want You." At the heart of the session is an epic take of Baker's signature tune "My Funny Valentine," which stretches the standard into a late night romantic lament.
