Trumpeter, flugelhornist, and vocalist Chesney Henry “Chet” Baker was born in Yale, Oklahoma on December 23, 1929.

He first took interest in music as a singer in his church choir. His father introduced him to the trombone, but Chet downsized to the trumpet.

After multiple stints in the army, Baker began his career as a professional musician. His mellow trumpet playing and beautiful voice quickly made him an icon of the ’50s cool jazz scene.
