"I kid you not, you closed your eyes, you were listening to Chet Baker. A remarkable young woman" Richard Wheatly, Jazz FM


This show features trumpet player Chet Baker’s beautiful music, recalling the smoky jazz clubs of 1950s West Coast cool. Chet’s romantic music belied a tragic, heroin-fuelled existence. His intriguing story epitomises that of the classic jazz musician.


Running through the fantastic music is a narrative that actress Sylvia Syms helped develop. The story that unfolds engages with all audiences whether jazz fans or not and generates discussions and sparks interest. The show was sold out last time it was featured at Ronnie Scott's.
 
Too Cool is Sue’s 4th album and features music from the show. It was no 8 in the jazz charts of The Sunday Times 100 Best Records of The Year 2013   ‘The trumpeter and singer Sue Richardson’s homage to Chet Baker brings the boy wonder back to life’.
