The quintessential after-hours melancholic loner spreads his magic dust here on a fine collection of standards associated with Billie Holiday.

This album is licensed for download from Decca. 

Download includes - cover art

'Baker's Holiday' finds Chet Baker effectively paying tribute to Billie Holiday with mellow trumpet solos and occasional vocals.  His performance of ten songs associated with Lady Day (most of which he had not recorded previously) is often exquisite.
