Let’s Get Lost – Chet Baker

Wonderful to hear any Chet Baker track, but a whole film about him? Lovely. Ethan Hawke does a great job of getting under Chet’s skin, like a hit of heroin. And he sings like him too, Only not as good, not as bruised, or as Geoff Dyer suggests, not as bruising for the song itself. Here’s the real deal, singing Let’s Get Lost, which he recorded for Bruce Weber’s super cool doc of the same name, made in 1988, a year before his death in a hotel in Amsterdam.
