Chet Baker in a short surreal film from 1963

Posted filed underFilm, Music, Surrealism, Videos.


“Tromba Fredda” (“Cold Trumpet”) is a 1963 short surrealist film directed by Italian film maker Enzo Nasso.

Chet Baker silently wanders through an Antonioniesque landscape in a Felliniesque state of wonderment as his improvised trumpet solos alternate between earnestly offering the obvious while alternately mocking the artiness of the whole affair.
