Stan Meets Chet is an album recorded in 1958 by saxophonist Stan Getz with trumpeter Chet Baker which was originally released on the Verve label.

“The pairing of Stan Getz and Chet Baker in 1958 in Chicago for an LP seemed like such a natural thing - both being golden boys enjoying their heydays with lyrically clean, brilliant solo styles. So it is odd that they teamed up in the studio only one other time, 25 years later, in their long careers. Which makes this a summit meeting to savor.

Their playing on "I'll Remember April" is a study in contrasts: Getz's long lines against Baker's shorter phrases. Baker delivers his best solo here, keeping to a medium tempo, while Getz gives his all on his curiously named adaptation of "Cherokee," which he cranks up to a furious tempo. The proceedings are fueled throughout by a solid Chicago rhythm section rarely heard on Verve.” – Acoustic Sounds
