Deep In A Dream (spoken lyric)

Chet Baker

 

A rather unusual clip of Chet Baker

Chet Baker breathed music, whether playing trumpet, singing, or living his life offstage.

Late in his career, Baker was captured in this brief clip reciting the lyrics to “Deep In A Dream,” a swing era song that has music by Jimmy Van Heusen and lyrics from Eddie DeLange.

The tune was a standard in the 1940s but was somewhat obscure by the time Chet Baker gave it some of his verbal magic.
