    Deep in a dreamthat really sums up what Chet Baker s music does for me While I really enjoy Miles Davis, I think my money s on Chet There was just something so true about his playing, something from deep down Or maybe that s just me reading into things too much Either way, Deep In a Dream is a wonderful biography, never flinching from the hard truths about its subject This is not an idealized portrait in any way We get to hear the angel sing, trying to drown out the demon riding on his Deep in a dreamthat really sums up what Chet Baker s music does for me While I really enjoy Miles Davis, I think my money s on Chet There was just something so true about his playing, something from deep down Or maybe that s just me reading into things too much Either way, Deep In a Dream is a wonderful biography, never flinching from the hard truths about its subject This is not an idealized portrait in any w...

    Holy Methadone y, Chet Baker, what a life What a relentlessly grim, sad, smack filled life There are books like Keith Richards s Life, full of the stories of a junkie and a life of excess, but also with some redemption and some life lessons to be found in the pages This book none of that No maturity gained, no life lessons except maybe drugs are bad, mmmmkay , and absolutely no redemption Yet the book was beautifully written, and the story compelling enough to make me want to keep rea Holy Methadone y, Chet Baker, what a life What a relentlessly grim, sad, smack filled life There are books like Keith Richards s Life, full ...
