Larry Baskett Trio: Chalice

Baskett’s vocals eerily recall Chet Baker. His horn playing (trumpet and fluegel) has echoes of Baker but is much more his own. He doesn’t have Baker’s haunting sound, but it’s nevertheless lovely on ballads.

Randy Vincent plays a lightly chiming Abercrombie-ish guitar on his solos, going to full chordal rhythm behind Baskett. Bassist Chris Amberger keeps the group steady with a rich sound.
