Part of MFAH’s “Jazz on Film” series

In the 1950s, Chet Baker’s jazz trumpeting, intimate crooning, and pretty-boy good looks epitomized West Coast cool. When photographer Bruce Weber caught up with him three decades later, time and drug addiction had ravaged Baker’s life and angelic beauty. Shown here in a new 4K digital restoration, the bittersweet portrait Let’s Get Lost intercuts gorgeous black-and-white footage of the latter-day Baker with the young musician in archival footage and photographs by William Claxton.

Preceded By
Jammin’ the Blues (1944, 10 minutes, 35mm), a jazz document celebrating its 80th anniversary. Directed by photographer Gjon Mili, Jammin’ the Blues features Lester Young; Houston’s own Illinois Jacquet; and others.
