A special show featuring Chet's most famous standards, his own compositions & works inspired by his life.
As well as performing some of the songs forever associated with Chet and his sublime solos, Sue has uncovered great songs written by him. There is also new material, written by Sue, including works inspired by Chet Baker’s life away from music. Weaving through the music are anecdotes about Chet, whose sweet music was such a contrast to his troubled life.
This narrative has been crafted by actress and theatre director Sylvia Syms.The great Gerry Mulligan/Chet Baker partnership is recreated with Karen Sharp on baritone playing authentic arrangements of songs such as Bernie’s Tune, Tea For Two and Nights At The Turntable.
Seven Arts in Leeds described the show as a 'tour de force performance'. 2013 is the 25th anniversary year of Chet's death and this show is ideal for fans and people new to his music alike.
The CD of the show will be released in May 2013.
