John Claridge's best photograph: Chet Baker lost in memory
‘I used to live above Ronnie Scott’s.
Chet Baker played beautifully,
considering he’d lost his teeth in the gutter’

Chesney Henry "Chet" Baker Jr. 1929-1988
as any musician
of his generation,
a romantic coolness
an alluring strain
who has been called
''the James Dean of jazz''
was a connoisseur
of fast cars,
women and drugs.
Addicted to heroin
of his adult life,
he died (...) at 58
after a fall
from a hotel window
