Well, he's not a guitar player, but I was really surprised to find out there was no tread about Chet Baker, one of the most underrated musicians and singers ever!
Well, feel free to discuss all about him, post pictures, videos, opinions, ...

I'll kick things off with a poll: do you consider Chet Baker a trumpet player or a singer (I see him as an allround musician, with his voice being an extension of his playing).

What are your favourite songs? Mine are My funny valentine (both the Chet Baker sings version and the instrumental Gerry Mulligan quartet version), I get along without you very well, Blue room and For minors only (with Art Pepper).
