Prompted by the vast success of Shelly Manne's jazz version of the My Fair Lady score, many a late-Fifties jazz performer took a crack at Broadway show tunes. This album looked to three musicals by the writers of My Fair Lady, with varying results. But the lyrical Chet Baker trumpet style fits most of the material quite well, and there is an unusually able group of players surrounding him–in particular, Bill Evans, Zoot Sims, and Pepper Adams. At its best, this set offers some of the most impressive work of Baker's somewhat erratic Riverside period.

I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face, I Could Have Danced All Night, The Heather on the Hill, On the Street Where You Live, Almost Like Being in Love, Thank Heaven for Little Girls, I Talk to the Trees, Show Me

with Herbie Mann, Zoot Sims, Pepper Adams, Bill Evans, Bob Corwin, Earl May, Clifford Jarvis
