Chet Baker

If you don’t already know about Chet Baker, I guess the wisdom of the wisdom of the wiki is good enough to start with. Pretty standard ’50s bop bio: youthful talent, gigs with Bird, heroin, decline, comeback, fatal fall from a hotel window in Amsterdam. But the music endures.

I hope you enjoy this, from his “West Coast cool” period.
