On the 13th of may of 25 years ago, Chet Baker, the great trumpeter and singer, left us. For this special anniversary Joe Barbieri invited jazz superstars Luca Aquino and Antonio Fresa to remember him and to celebrate the sublime art of the Yale's musician, reinterpreting his most beautiful repertoire and also investigating Chet’s connections with Italy, where he lived for a long, intense and controversal period.

"The project" - says Barbieri - "undoubtedly takes off from the extraordinary songs sung by Chet, who 

certified its revolutionary and inimitable language; “The best of Chet Baker sings”, for example, remains one of my reference’s album, and around some of his best songs we wanted to build a small corollary, composed of some of the most beautiful tunes that Chet played in years of prolific staying in my country. Everything was then further filtered through the music i love: bossa, some inserts of classical music a certain all-european minimalism".

In homage to Baker - beside to Barbieri, Aquino and Fresa - the contribution of four extraordinary guests: the american singer Stacey Kent (on “I Fall In Love Too Easily”),

 

the brazilian singer-songwriter Márcio Faraco (on “But Not For Me”) and two icons of the italian jazz who have worked closely and intensely with Chet: the double-bassist Furio Di Castri (on “Arrivederci”) and multi-instrumentalist Nicola Stilo (on “Almost Blue” and “But Not For Me”).

"Chet Lives!" is a loving, passionate proof that today, more than ever and
even after 25 years...  Chet lives!
In may in stores and on stages.
