Chet Baker's performance here is both fragile and passionate. Baker is joined by Van Morrison and reunited with Elvis Costello, with whom he recorded Shipbuilding at Ronnie Scott's intimate English club. In interviews with Costello, the pain and happiness hidden between his wrinkled, tired face pour out like so many notes. Chet recalls winning a spot with Charlie Parker's band at the tender age of 22, but humbles himself by confessing to a lifelong addiction to drugs. But through it all, it seems one constant remained in his life, which always brought him back from the abyss and made his triumphs ever so much sweeter--the cool, sweaty, dark, and ethereal sounds of that West Coast "cool school" of jazz. 58 minutes.
