Born To Be Blue Original Soundtrack
Chet Baker's struggle to overcome his demons and stage a comeback in the late '60s are immortalized on the big screen in the new biopic Born To Be Blue, with Ethan Hawke starring as the singer-trumpeter. BORN TO BE BLUE: MUSIC FROM THE MOTION PICTURE highlights a number of standards made famous by Baker, newly recorded and performed by a jazz combo assembled by Canadian pianist/composer David Braid that features Kevin Turcotte on trumpet. Among the classics revisited are “Over The Rainbow,” “A Small Hotel” and “My Funny Valentine,” one of two songs that feature Hawke on vocals along with “I've Never Been In Love Before, heard during the film's emotional climax. Joined by original recordings from Charles Mingus and Odetta, the BORN TO BE BLUE soundtrack paints an evocative picture of a legendary jazz performer.
