Chet Baker

Chet Baker American jazz trumpeter, flugelhornist and vocalist. A tragic figure with immense talent, both in his silvery fingered trumpet playing and his wonderfully soft and heartfelt voice

Baker earned much attention and critical praise through the 1950s, particularly for albums featuring his vocals (Chet Baker Sings, It Could Happen to You).
