I picked up this book because I heard an interview about it on NPR. As a fan of Chet Baker’s music and jazz in general, I thought it would be interesting to learn more about the trumpet player.

Chet Baker had it all: talent, handsome looks, fans worldwide and a drug addiction that took it all away.

The author, James Gavin, presents a thoroughly researched portrait of Chet Baker. I wasn’t wild about his cynical, sarcastic tone throughout the book, however, that didn’t prevent me from finishing it either. It was a disturbing look at the jazz legend’s life, to say the least.

I think the life and times of Chet Baker would make for a great movie. Sadly though, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to listen to the music of Chet Baker the same way again.
