(Justin Time Essentials Collection) Love for Sale – recorded live at Montreal’s Rising Sun Celebrity Club in 1978 and available on vinyl for the first time, provides an unexpurgated glimpse into the musical reality of Chet Baker’s last years; a life on the move from club to club across North America and Europe. The music was often loose and ragged. But there is a solo on “Snowbound” that is the kind of Baker moment you wait for. It is fragile threads of luminous melody, discovered by a series of existential choices so slow they sometimes almost stop. – Press Release

About Chet Baker:

Chesney Henry "Chet" Baker, Jr. (December 23, 1929 – May 13, 1988) was an American jazz trumpeter, flugelhornist, and vocalist.

Baker earned much attention and critical praise through the 1950s, particularly for albums featuring his vocals (Chet Baker Sings, It Could Happen to You). Jazz historian Dave Gelly described the promise of Baker's early career as "James Dean, Sinatra, and Bix, rolled into one". His well-publicized drug habit also drove his notoriety and fame; Baker was in and out of jail frequently before enjoying a career resurgence in the late 1970s and '80s.

In 1987 Chet Baker was inducted into the Big Band and Jazz Hall of Fame. While in 1989 he was elected to Down Beat Jazz Hall of Fame by that magazine's Critics Poll. – Wiki
