    Pure unadulterated improvised music. This is as good as it gets folks. Technically, Chet is not playing complicated runs but he sure can pick the best and juiciest notes in the chords with the most artistic simplicity anyone can imagine. He can, when he wants to, play as complicated and hard boppish as he feels.

    Chet was one of my idols, but the drugs got the best of him and we lost him 2 an overdose. I loved his time with Mulligan. His jaw, teeth and embouchure was altered when a supplier beat him over $ owed. He was ever after in pain and could no longer play a whole set, with prompted him to start singing to fill in the time. Great loss.

      Chet started singing long before he lost his teeth. He sang “My Funny Valentine” way back in the 1950’s twenty five years before needing dentures.
