Mastering of this title was completed by Kevin Reeves at Sterling Sound NYC, using the original 1/4' analog stereo masters from the EmArcy Vault. The masters were played on a modified Studer A820 with Wolke Butterfly heads and converted to digital at 192kHz/24bit resolution using the DCS 904. All equalization and level setting was done in the analog domain using Sterling's proprietary mastering systems.

Baker's Holiday, a musical tribute to the legacy of Billie Holiday, is one of Chet Baker's finest treasures. The session is highlighted with the fluegelhornist's tender solos and blissful vocals. Backed by a stellar cast of musicians including pianist Hank Jones, drummer Connie Key, guitarist Everett Barksdale and more, this colorful outing is an elegant ten track masterpiece which features the hits "Easy Living," "These Foolish Things (Remind Me Of You)" and "Mean To Me."
