By Good. Chet is the predecessor of any sad man, with any kind of instrument. This is 1954!

He don't wail, he don't try, he just does. Please try him out. Preferable with inears on a sad cafe/bar in a strange country, or just your local inn.

Very smooth voice. The music is not my cup of tea. I feel the focus is on voice and lyrics and musically is boring.

Stunningly creepy wonderful record. Chet had one of the smoothest voices I've ever heard. Very boyish. My Funny Valentine made my skin crawl. I doubt Chet intended for this record to be so melancholy and disturbing but he succeeded elegantly. An instant hit with me.
