Chet Baker (au)
The infamous Chet Baker -- musician, junkie, and progenitor of West Coast cool jazz -- has always been an aloof mystery. Until now. His pure trumpeting, aching vocals, and classic renditions of many jazz standards all belie the turmoil of his private life. Baker dominated the jazz scene of the 1950s, working with the likes of Charlie Parker and Stan Kenton. By the sixties, however, he found himself caught in a downward spiral of heroin, cocaine, and prescription drugs, in and out of jail, and in and out of relationships -- this is his account. Throughout his life Chet returned again and again to the solace his music offered, to the haven of his trumpet’s smooth wail and his voice’s low croon. “Chet Baker has let us in, past the music right into his soul.”
