Chet Baker Plays for Lovers combines tracks off four of trumpeter/vocalist Chet Baker's albums from the '50s and '60s, including 1958's It Could Happen to You and the 1959 classic Chet. Featured are such stellar tracks as "How Long Has This Been Going On?," "My Heart Stood Still," and "You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To." While this is by no means a definitive Baker collection, it is a solidly romantic single-disc compilation of some of the iconic jazz musician's better and lesser-known cuts.
