Chet Baker was the ‘James Dean of Jazz’. His extraordinary talent with the trumpet and his fragile, captivating vocal style barely hid his offstage drug addiction and frequent brushes with the law.
In this thrilling, dark theatrical performance, David Goldthorpe explores the haunting, unforgettable music that made Baker famous and the visceral, self-destruction that made him infamous. The moving, raw narrative is presented alongside a live trio of superb jazz musicians and is followed by a full jazz set in the second half.
A five-star evening’s entertainment.

This is no impersonation of Baker, or a boring chronology of his life, but an exceptionally well researched and written piece… this is a show for theatre-goers as well as jazz lovers.
