Voted best trumpet player in the world only five years before – now he’s doing time in an Italian jail for drug offences. Italians strolling around the town walls stop and listen to the sound of Chet’s golden trumpet wafting through the prison bars. Chet shared his prison cell with a storyteller. The storyteller became his friend.

Twenty-eight years later, Chet shared a hotel room in Amsterdam with his friend. That was the night Chet Baker died. Only the storyteller knows what really happened. He knows the whole story – and now he’s telling it.

With live music on stage arranged and performed by Colin Steele (trumpet) and Dave Milligan (piano) this is an unforgettable evening of jazz, junk, and genius!
