            “The ultra-hip and sophisticated "cool jazz" that Chet Baker (trumpet/vocals) helped define in the early '50s matured rapidly under the tutelage of producer Dick Bock. This can be traced to Baker's earliest sides on Bock's L.A.-based Pacific Jazz label. This album is the result of Baker's first sessions for the independent Riverside label. The Chet Baker Quartet featured on Chet Baker Sings: It Could Happen to You includes Kenny Drew (piano), Sam Jones (bass), and Philly Joe Jones (drums). (Performances by bassist George Morrow and drummer Dannie Richmond are featured on a few cuts.) This results in the successful combination of Baker's fluid and nonchalant West Coast delivery with the tight swinging accuracy of drummer Jones and pianist Drew. Nowhere is this balance better displayed than the opening and closing sides on the original album, "Do It the Hard Way" and "Old Devil Moon," respectively. One immediate distinction between these vocal sides and those recorded earlier in the decade for Pacific Jazz is the lissome quality of Baker's playing and, most notably, his increased capacity as a vocalist. The brilliant song selection certainly doesn't hurt either. This is an essential title in Chet Baker's 30-plus year canon.” AllMusic Review by Lindsay Planer

            “It is a great time to be a collector of jazz vinyl with Blue Note's ongoing archive raids, the Acoustic Sounds/Verve team-up and Craft Recordings mining their extensive catalog. In the latter case, the reissue imprint has graced the world with a set of four classic recordings that trumpeter/vocalist Chet Baker made for the Riverside label in 1958 and 1959. With engineer Kevin Gray working from the original analog masters, these sessions sound lush and decadent. Baker was at the peak of his craft and a master of slow, candlelit balladry, and he surrounded himself with an unbelievable cast of players... It's only on It Could Happen To You that we get to hear his inimitable voice - a wispy high tenor that sounds like it is coming across the ocean from some faraway isle. This album is not even his best turn as a singer, but it still pierces the heart to hear him explore standards like 'Old Devil Moon' and 'It Could Happen To You.' He has the heart of a pure romantic and it comes bursting out in all its tender glory on this lovely album.” Robert Ham, Paste Magazine
