WEBER, Bruce. Let’s Get Lost.

(New York, NY): Little Bear Films, Inc., 1988. First edition. Folio. Scarce photographic document published in association with the documentary film “Let’s Get Lost” about the turbulent life and career of jazz trumpeter Chet Baker, written and directed by Bruce Weber. The, (film and), book traces Chet Baker’s career from the 1950s, playing with jazz greats like Charlie Parker, Gerry Mulligan, and Russ Freeman, to his heroin addiction in the 1980s. By juxtaposing these two decades, Weber presents a sharp contrast between the younger, handsome Baker — the statuesque idol who resembled a mix of James Dean and Jack Kerouac — to what he became, “a seamy looking drugstore cowboy-cum-derelict. A very good copy in photographic stapled wrappers. Some wear at staples as usual.
