Only the early one with (under) Gerry Mulligan. He's too sentimental for me.

Hi Jess,

At the moment just one: "Baby Breeze." There's some great footage of him on YouTube.

Have you heard him sing Elvis Costello's "Almost Blue"? Beautiful.

Almost Blue is beautiful, as is the entire Let's Get Lost soundtrack. I like his earlier stuff with Gerry Mulligan and Art Pepper. Some of his later stuff, with the above exception, can be a little too pretty. His singing is really something.

Logan,

I own two Joy Division albums.

I have about 50 Chet Baker CDs and I just received five more, which I ordered for Christmas.

The five I got include:

Chet's Choice

Blues for a Reason

Mr. B.

The Touch of Your Lips

and

Silence (by Charlie Haden featuring Chet Baker)

All of these discs are highly rated by the All Music Guide, all very hard to find discs !
