I Love Chet Baker

-If you don't live it, it won't come out your horn- Charlie Parker 21 People

    Of Course I Do (not!)

    I do not get along without you very well... and neither did Chet when he sang with his heart breaking voice this tune, trying to be brave, trying to fool himself and the world that things were fine. Yes, I still lock myself upstairs and cry. Yes, I just closed my office's door...

    Chet According To Me...

    I was asleep... having a good rest, and woke up imagining Chet's voice. I had to get up and listen to some of his songs...  So much has been written about him, and there are many legends attached to his fame, and character... all I know for sure is what he makes me feel...

    Difference

    (for a) Chet's lazy trumpet on an early warm summer day. You don't know what love is with strings.  Just for you. Because of you.  Oh, and next, Love walked in. See her walk as slow it is as the breeze. And then, upcoming, What a difference a day made. How not to...

    Dancing In The Dark

    Maybe it is silly, but I do not listen to my favourite artists very often. I feel they captivate me and elevate me so high I first have to "earn" the honor of enjoying their magic. When they accompany me, we go together into a beautiful journey where past, present and future are...

    New Love

    Not only is he gorgeous, but he's talented, romantic, and has a soothing, sexy voice. Believe it or not, I just discovered him today. I've been living under a rock.

    Chet Baker - Tenderly

    There are a few trumpet players that move my heart to the point of tears and Baker is definitely one of those players. This track reminds me of pre-radical Miles Davis. 'Tenderly' not only puts me in my place but it reminds me of why I have emotions..

    I Fall In Love Too Easily

    I fall in love too easily, I fall in love too fast I fall in love too terribly hard, for love to ever last My heart should be well schooled, 'cause I've been fooled in the past And still I fall in love too easily, I fall in love too fast
