The DVD of Bruce Weber's Let's Get Lost (1988) documentary about Chet Baker is reportedly due in December. Slightly out of synch, here are Chet Baker and Stan Getz (at a 1984 Stockholm concert).
Anthony Minghella, filming The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999), felt that Chet Baker was key to the era depicted in the film, commenting, "More than anything else, it's Chet Baker that makes you feel the late 1950s." Thus, Matt Damon sings "My Funny Valentine," and the characters in the film visit the San Remo Jazz Festival where Chet Baker did appear in 1958.
