About the Play

Chetty on Trumpet


Chet Baker is an intriguing musician: a man of prodigious talent and no discipline, angelic good looks and a devilish mean streak, an innocent voice and a virulent drug habit. Chetty’s Lullaby pinpoints the moment when Baker, 30 years of age, went where his addiction dictated and what those decisions meant for his career. Play features live renditions from Chet Baker and Crew (Pacific Jazz) and Chet Baker in New York (Riverside).
