    Chet Baker - My Funny Valentine. “The song fascinated Baker. It captured all he aspired to as a musician … ‘Valentine’ became his favorite song; rarely would he do a show without it, or fail to find something new in its thirty-five bars.” The instrumental version of the song clearly resonated with Baker (the quartet recorded it again for Pacific Jazz in 1953), but not long after the Quartet versions, he decided to do a vocal album and cut “My Funny Valentine” for Chet Baker Sings (1954).

"In every work of art the subject is primordial, whether the artist knows it or not. The measure of the formal qualities is only a sign of the measure of the artist's obsession with his subject; the form is always in proportion to the obsession." ~ Alberto Giacometti
