TOO COOL The Chet Baker Story

by | Read by Ross Porter

Biography & Memoir • 3 hrs. • Audio Program • ©

The CBC scores again with a smooth, intelligent, and warmly engaging bio of legendary jazz trumpeter Chet Baker. Sprinkled liberally with the witty, nostalgic, and rueful memories of those who knew and worked with the eccentric horn genius, larded with jarringly beautiful recordings of Baker playing live and in-studio, and narrated by the genial Ross Porter, this package is a must-hear slice of musical history. Though you'll be saddened by Baker's eventual decline, due to his hard-living, drug-immersed ways, you'll find yourself celebrating this tough yet vulnerable artist. D.J.B. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
