Presented by Perth International Jazz Festival

‘Lost In A Dream’ - The Musical Life of Chet Baker.

Prolific Australian trumpeter, singer, and composer/arranger Roscoe James Irwin (The Cat Empire, The Bamboos), presents a hauntingly beautiful journey through the sounds and songs of one of the most revered, yet tragic figures in popular jazz history.

Once upon a time considered the James Dean of Jazz, Chet’s struggle and decline led to what was ultimately a tragic story. Yet the legacy of love and West Coast Cool he left behind has resonated for decades since. Joined by a jazz trio and 20 piece string orchestra, Irwin will present his own gorgeous re-workings of Baker’s classic material, with all the cinematic romance, heartbreak, and soul of 1950s California.

Chris Foster: piano
Nick Abbey: bass
