24 April - ore 11:00 Circolo dei lettori


We’re all familiar with the tragic legend of Chet Baker. But what about the true story? Jazz History teacher Francesco Martinelli presents Jeroen de Valk’s definitive biography Chet Baker: His Life and Music. Martinelli himself translated and edited the Italian version of the book that for the first time provides an exhaustive exploration of the poetics and torment of this unforgettable trumpet master. Chet Baker also happens to be one of the main characters in Geoff Dyer’s novel But Beautiful, which is the inspiration behind this year’s TJF opening performance.
