Almost Blue

Isn't that the name of a song? Why yes, yes it is.
Working on my Mood Music playlist in Spotify today and rummaging around for Chet Baker's My Funny Valentine. But I'll save that for Feb. 14.
In the meantime:



From Wiki:
In 1983, British singer Elvis Costello, a longtime fan of Baker, hired the trumpeter to play a solo on his song "Shipbuilding", from the album Punch the Clock. The song was a top 40 hit in the UK, and exposed Baker's music to a new audience. Later, Baker often featured Costello's song "Almost Blue" (inspired by Baker's version of "The Thrill Is Gone") in his live sets, and recorded the song on Let's Get Lost, a documentary film about his life.
