Product Description & Reviews

CHET BAKER'S LAST RECORDED PERFORMANCE WITH RARE INTERVIEW FOOTAGE & GUEST PERFORMANCES BY ELVIS COSTELLO & VAN MORRISON. FEATURES: 5.1 AUDIO, JUKEBOX PLAY, MUSICAL TREE OF INFLUENCE. In the early 1950s, trumpeter-vocalist Chet Baker was the "James Dean of jazz." Blessed with good looks and a lyrical and lean trumpet style, Baker arrived on the scene in California at the age of 22, when the great alto saxophonist Charlie Parker invited him to work in his band. Decades later, Baker got involved in drugs, had run-ins with the law, and became a poster boy for the image of the doped-out jazz fiend. This 1986 film, shot two years before Baker fell to his death from a hotel in Amsterdam, captures the painful pathos and poetry of his art in an intimate set at Ronnie Scott's famed jazz club in London. With a breathy, walking-on-eggshells trumpet tone similar to the sound of Miles Davis, and an achy, whisper-toned vocal style, the weathered and weary Baker delivers piercing takes on a number of standards and jazz classics, including "Just Friends," "My Ideal," and "Shifting Down." Punk rock icon Elvis Costello joins Baker on blue-embered renditions of "The Very Thought of You" and "You Don't Know What Love Is." Not to be outdone, Van Morrison of "Moondance" fame duets with Baker on an intimate reading of "Send in the Clowns." In addition to the music, Costello interviews Baker about various and sundry aspects of his life: his boyhood in Oklahoma, his evolution as a jazz artist, and his nightmarish decent into drugs. Along with a detailed discography, career tree, and trivia track, this DVD gives us the best of this talented but tortured genius. --Eugene Holley Jr.

An essential CD for Chet Baker fans, this reissue includes some of the selections on the long-unavailable Mosaic Records collection The Complete Pacific Jazz Live Recordings of the Chet Baker Quartet with Russ Freeman. Baker's productive partnership with pianist Freeman only lasted from mid-1953 to 1955, yet it coincided with and helped spark the meteoric rise in the trumpeter's popularity after he split with baritone saxophonist Gerry Mulligan and went solo. The recording is aptly named, as
