Chet Baker - Laura

One of the most beautiful jazz compositions of all time, David Raksin's "Laura" has been recorded by hundreds, if not thousands of performers. It's taken from the 1944 film Laura, and there also exists a vocal version with lyrics by David Mercer. This, however, is legendary Chet Baker at his instrumental best. Just listen to the sound of his lonesome trumpet. It gets me every time. I don't know when Baker recorded it, but who cares? This is just a wonderful piece of music, and that's what matters.
