I have always loved Chet Baker. Honestly, the first song I ever heard by him was probably the one most know... "My Funny Valentine". And that was the last song recorded for this album... at first I couldn't bring myself to "destroy" the memories I associated with the song. But at the last minute I could not go without at least attempting a new version, trying to keep the melody the same, the mood somber, but doing something different to it. Hence, there are two versions (one here and one soon to be released).

I could write volumes about Chet Baker, but for now I will leave a couple of links for you to explore. Why re-write what has been done already?
