Spiritual Jazz Flute | Chip Wickham - "Blue To Red"
Friday 9th, April
1:00pm - 3:00pm
Born 90 years ago this year, Chet Baker burst onto the scene when he successfully auditioned for Charlie Parker, much to the chagrin of Dizzy and Miles. Before long, he’d found his trademark sound of lyrical, thoughtful trumpet playing and of course that distinctive, close-mic’d, sultry singing, exemplified on the veritable classic Chet Baker Sings LP.
Simon Paterson (vocals, bass), Thom Whitworth (trumpet) and Paul Deats (piano) provide their take on the canon of repertoire that Chet made his own, including well-loved songs by George Gershwin, Hoagy Carmichael, Jimmy Van Heusen, Rogers and Hart, Jerome Kern and many more.
