BAKER Chet

BAKER CHET CHESNEY H. (TP-VC) chetbaker

Yale, Oklahoma. 23/12/1929. – Amsteerdam, Paesi Bassi, Olanda. 13/5/88.

Nel 1940 si è trasferito in California con la famiglia e qui ha studiato teoria e armonia al El Camino College di Los Angeles. La sua carriera è iniziata alla grande, suonando con Vido Musso, con Stan Getz e con Charlie Parker nel 1952. Subito dopo ha costituito con Gerry Mulligan un quartetto, divenuto subito molto famoso. Nel 1953 ha messo su un suo gruppo insieme a Russ Freeman, ha suonato con Dick Twardzick e Bob Zieff, in seguito ha arricchito la sua gamma espressiva rivelandosi anche un ottimo cantante. Il suono della sua tromba dal timbro delicato è sembrato a molti la reincarnazione di Bix Beiderbecke e, molto vicino a quello di Miles Davis, senz’altro il suo principale ispiratore. Ha vinto due volte il referendum della rivista Down Beat. Purtroppo la sua carriera, risentendo delle vicende legate alla droga, è stata spesso interrotta per periodi di detenzioni e processi. Ha subito un pestaggio che gli ha fatto perdere gran parte dei denti. Negli ultimi anni ha saputo reagire, ha reimparato a suonare la tromba, ha ritrovato coraggio ed è tornato ad essere quel poeta della tromba e del canto. E’ morto drammaticamente. Il regista Bruce Weber ha voluto fare in suo oMaggio un film documento dal titolo ”Let’s get lost”. Durante la sua carriera ha inciso con moltissimi musicisti tra i quali: Phil Urso, Art Pepper, Bud Shank, Lee Konitz, Johnny Griffin, Al Haig, Kenny Drew, Paul Chambers, Philly Joe Jones, Herbie Mann, Pepper Adams, Bill Evans, Kenny Burrell. Musicista in possesso di doti melodiche infinite, dalla grande facilità di improvvisazione, egli ha sempre bandito le banalità ed il ricorso agli effetti inutili. La voce profonda della sua tromba pervasa di tristezza, dalla sonorità delicata e pastosa, priva di vibrato, sembra sgorgare dal suo animo intristito dalle vicissitudini patite. Cantante che come egli stesso afferma canta come suona: sono un suonatore di tromba che canta o un cantante che suona la tromba. Egli nel cantare si appoggia sulle note pensate per l’assolo, fatta di anticipi e stop ed una sfumatura evanescente intorno alla melodia. Dalla voce delicata sino alla rottura ed in questo il suo modello è Billie Holiday, pensando le note di testa con il cuore.

BAKER ERNEST “KING”. (VC)

Natchez, Adams Country, Mississippi, 30/5/1939. – U.S.A. 5/3/2000.

Musicista originario del Mississippi, è arrivato a Chicago in tenera età. E’ maturato nei club della Windy City avendo come mentore Byther Smith. Egli ha fatto parte di quella moltitudine delle voci soul blues la cui carriera è stata documentata tra gli anni ’60 e ’70 in una serie di 45°giri. Si è trasferito a Los Angeles nel 1980 e qui ha fatto parte di cori ecclesiastici. Nella metà degli anni ’90 è tornato sui palcoscenici profani ed è qui che è diventato “Re Ernesto” appellativo che gli è stato dato per la sua riconosciuta bravura di ballerino e cantante. Cantante estroverso e grintoso, ma molto poco personale. Voce dallo shouting fiero e fremente, dagli alti incandescenti e dai medi corposi.
