Chet Baker

Bürgerl. Name:Chesney Henry Baker, Jr.

American jazz trumpeter, singer, composer, and artist.
Born: 23 December 1929 in Yale, Oklahoma, USA.
Died: 13 May 1988 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands (aged 58).
Baker began his career in the early 1950s and played together with Charlie Parker and Gerry Mulligan. Unfortunately, his drug addiction hampered his career, including arrests for narcotics. From 1957 on, he had several comebacks with such musicians as Bobby Jaspar, René Thomas, and Gerry Mulligan with whom he had already recorded. In spite of having his teeth knocked out, Baker recovered and continued to record frequently, especially in live settings, for many different labels, including small groups and fronting large ensembles. From the 1980s until he died, he did a lot of his recordings in Europe. , Wikipedia , , ,
