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 much

as any musician

of his generation,

Baker epitomized

a romantic coolness

whose mystique

involved

an alluring strain

of danger.

 

Handsome

and talented

but imperiously

self-destructive,

the man

who has been called

''the James Dean of jazz''

was a connoisseur

of fast cars,

women and drugs.

 

Addicted to heroin

for most

of his adult life,

he died (...) at 58

after a fall

from a hotel window

in Amsterdam.
