It is a very interesting documentary type presentation.
I have seen it several times, and it is always interesting to watch again.
A lot of fashion photographers were dabbling (or switching entirely) to music videos when I was working. Bruce Webber was one of the best. I used to get feeback from these guys that went into videos ..... "Musicians are soooooo much more interesting to hang around with (than models). But they're more stubborn, and harder to work with."

Don't be afraid to try something different. The Ark was built by an amateur and the Titanic was built by a group of experienced engineers.
By the inch it's a cinch, by the yard, it's hard!
It was never my experience that models were "dumber" than anyone else, often they tended to be quieter and because they were beautiful, got stuck with certain labels. Very often they were too tall too young and not very popular in HS .... It's a bad label and it's just not true.
This doc. was one of the big reasons I got back into playing. I remember hearing a CB record in the 90's and thinking it was somebody 'new' because his vocal tone was more like a pop singer than a buttery crooner. But his phrasing was anything but pop, it's impeccable, he sings like he plays.

Just today I was at the music store and was surprised to see so many Chet Baker's CD's and even a vinyl one. I've listened to so much music throughout my life and never found something quite as good as Chet. It's always a pleasure listening to him, every single song is good.

The older he got, the more "real" his playing and singing became. Its because of watching this movie in the early 90's that I have enjoyed the daily struggle of trying to be a jazz trumpet player! I listen to everyone but I always end up listening to Chet at the end of the day. There definately is something "hypnotic" about this movie!
