Today, we're honoring the life and legacy of the one and only Chet Baker. A pioneer of the West Coast jazz movement and a master of the trumpet, Baker's smooth, melodic style left a lasting impact on the world of jazz music.Born in 1929 in Yale, Oklahoma, Baker began playing the trumpet at a young age and quickly developed a passion for jazz. He began his professional career in the 1940s, performing with the likes of Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie. In the 1950s, Baker moved to Los Angeles and formed his own quintet, which became known for its cool, laid-back sound and Baker's signature crooning vocals.Throughout his career, Baker recorded numerous albums and toured the world, sharing his music with audiences in Europe, Asia, and beyond. He was also known for his tumultuous personal life, which was marked by struggles with drug addiction and legal issues. Despite these challenges, Baker remained a beloved figure in the jazz community and his music continues to be celebrated and revered to this day.In honor of Chet Baker, we're excited to announce that we have a limited edition collector vinyl of his music available on our website.
