A tribute to jazz trumpeter Chet Baker, based on one of the last interviews before his tragic death by falling out of a hotel window
in Amsterdam in 1988. An impression of the tough life he led as an artist and a drug addict.

try to be quiet
it’s that kind of tune you know
Those chords are in the first measure !
a lot of fucking attitudes going on here...
Getting the shock treatment
and at the same time
Kind of put myself in a trance and a
Dadada dadada dada
So it was kind of tricky business
Do my business
i didn’t know that would be possible
oh ssz bwh... i guess they call it at the speed bowl!
There was a bright blue color Somebody put that down there There was a bright blue color When i say blue, i mean blue He almost died that day
it was a dream you know Things like that don’t happen There’s pain in my heart every memory i’ll keep
There’s pain in my heart
man that was a rude awakening let me tell you
may this bliss never end....
