🎺 Excellent documentary on Yale, Oklahoma's own Chet Baker, truly great West Coast cool jazz trumpeter and world champion drug addict, who was said to have invented the speedball. Baker also sang, and that was something people either love or hate. His unforgettable signature tune was "My Funny Valentine."
Mussolini's son was a jazz pianist, who played a gig with Baker and others in Italy. Baker, who paid zero attention to politics, had no idea who Mussolini was. When one of the other guys told him the story, he went over to Mussolini, and said, "Hey, I'm sorry about what happened to your old man."

A rather sad story but made in a very visually interesting manner: it seems to have been copied by music video directors for twenty years. That man who looks like he's in his mid-eighties was actually in his mid-fifties! Don't do drugs!
