    Chet Baker really nails it… so sad, and beautiful. I just watched the documentary “Let’s Get Lost” last week. He died too young but I’m glad we have his work preserved so we can still enjoy the artistry.

      Hi Tom,
      I hadn’t been aware of this documentary until receiving your message. Intend to watch it very soon. Reviewing The Miles Davis Story (2001) at present.
