After leaving Gerry Mulligan, trumpeter Chet Baker (1929) recorded the septet effort of
Grey December (december 1953),
Chet Baker & Strings (february 1954), that wed cool jazz and a string orchestra,
and especially Chet Baker Sextet (september 1954), with Budd Shank on saxophones
and Bob Brookmeyer on trombone,
but fell victim to drug addiction for most of his mature years.
Baker died in 1988.
