Chat Baker You can't go Home again



Chesney Henry "Chet" Baker, Jr. (December 23, 1929 – May 13, 1988) was an American jazz trumpeter, flugelhornist and vocalist. Baker earned much attention and critical praise through the 1950s, particularly for albums featuring his vocals (Chet Baker Sings, It Could Happen to You). Jazz historian David Gelly described the promise of Baker's early career as "James Dean, Sinatra, and Bix, rolled into one."[3] His "well-publicized drug habit" also drove his notoriety and fame; Baker was in and out of jail frequently before enjoying a career resurgence in the late 1970s and '80s

Donna Gardier, one of the UK’s most soulful voices, makes a welcome return to recording with her new solo album “Home”.

In the mid-Nineties she fronted UK band Raw Stylus, who recorded the classic singles “Pushing Against The Flow” and “Believe In Me”, and toured extensively with them in Europe, the US and Japan.

Of the brand new album Donna says: “I enjoyed doing my first solo album, but the reason why I particularly like this new album is that it is true to me, coming from the heart, true to the person I am today.

The exception is an intimate acoustic version of the Marvin Gaye favourite “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)”, produced by the Birmingham-based Full Flava team.

The songs on “Home” range from powerful up-tempo tracks like “Decisions”, “I Am” and the title track to the softer “Real Thing” and the seductive neo soul of “Something Special” and “One And Only”.
