Song of the Day: Chet Baker and Stan Getz – “Winter Wonderland”

Chet Baker & Stan Getz, “Winter Wonderland,” from West Coast Live (Pacific Jazz)

Trumpeter Chet Baker and saxophonist Stan Getz were a match made in jazz heaven. Their styles were similar —laid back, elegant, yet smoldering from the inside — which is why their numerous albums together made for such gratifying listening. Here they are from a live recording at The Haig in Los Angeles in 1953, playing an uptempo bop version of the holiday classic “Winter Wonderland.” Christmas carols never swung so hard.
