Book Description: VINTAGE, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 198 x 130 mm. Brand New Book. From his emergence in the 1950s - when an uncannily beautiful young man from Oklahoma appeared in the West Coast and became, seemingly overnight, the prince of cool jazz - until his violent, drug-related death in Amsterdam in 1988, Chet Baker lived a life that has become an American myth. At once sexy and forbidding, the so-called James Dean of Jazz struck a note of menace in the staid fifties. In this first major biography, the story of Baker s demise is finally revealed. So is the truth behind his tormented childhood. Behind Baker s icy facade lay something ominous, unspoken. The mystery drove both sexes crazy. But his only real romance, apart from music, was with drugs. Gavin brilliantly recreates the life of a man whose journey from golden promise to eventual destruction mirrored America s fall from post-war innocence - but whose music has never lost the power to enchant and seduce us.
