Whether in his golden youth or premature old age, legendary jazz trumpeter Chet Baker’s musical virtuosity always shone through. In this frank and revealing documentary made a year before his death, interviews, recording sessions, archive footage and home movies are used by director Bruce Weber to show a man ravaged by his long involvement with drugs.
Part of UCSD Extension’s FONT West Series. For the past 17 years, The Festival of New Trumpet Music in New York City has presented an ambitious annual program of concerts and educational events celebrating both emerging artists and established masters on the trumpet. FONT is committed to the support of new music by a diverse community of trumpet and brass players, and the presentation of their work to the public. The Festival aims to promote opportunity, encourage diversity, and enable community for and among trumpet players and those with whom they work.
