Born in 1929 in the depths of Oklahoma, where part of his family still resides, Chet Baker burst onto the jazz scene in the 1950s alongside Stan Getz, then Charlie Parker and Gerry Mulligan. The grip of drugs disrupted his career in 1956 when, an inspired and innovative virtuoso, he went from strength to strength, recognized by his peers, even sought after by the cinema. In addition to archives and testimonies, the film presents broad moments from a recording session of Chet Baker in Los Angeles in 1987 as well as behind the scenes of a concert at the Cannes film festival, a year before his accidental death in 1988.
Film projection in partnership with the Audiovisual Institute of Monaco, directed by Vincent Vatrican and presented by Jean-Paul Boutellier (Artistic creator of Jazz à Vienne).
