The Chet Baker Songbook

We think that all of our Songbook evenings are special, of course – each with its own unique charms and challenges. However, we believe that this one will be a particular standout. First, there’s the repertoire – exclusively songs that the charismatic Chet Baker loved and lived. Second, there’s the ongoing supreme artistry of guitarist Reg Schwager and bassist Steve Wallace – pure magic. Third, there’s our very special guest artist – New York cornet virtuoso Warren Vaché.

ABOUT CHET BAKER

Chet Baker (1929-1988) was a jazz trumpeter and singer most often associated with the West Coast, “cool jazz” style.

His repertoire included many songs that we now consider classic standards, like Alone Together, Everything Happens To Me, Time After Time and My Funny Valentine.

Here is Bruce Weber‘s 1988 documentary, Let’s Get Lost. If you haven’t seen it, it’s definitely worth checking out…
