    Il progetto multimediale, ideato e realizzato da Pasquale Mega, è un omaggio al grande trombettista americano Chet Baker, morto in circostanze misteriose nel 1988 all’età di 59 anni.
    Attraverso la lettura di brani, tratti dal libro autobiografico “Come se avessi le ali. Le memorie perdute”, si ripercorrono i principali avvenimenti che hanno caratterizzato la vita e la carriera musicale del famoso jazzista.
    Il tutto è supportato da video che lo ritraggono mentre suona, da interviste che lo vedono protagonista e dall’esecuzione dal vivo di alcuni tra gli standard preferiti da Chet Baker (My Funny Valentine, Tangerine, Seven Step To Haven ecc.)
