Event Description: 
The Bach Dancing & Dynamite Society has been a major contributor to the San Francisco live music scene since 1964. This concert is in memory of the great Chet Baker and all the wonderful jazz melodies he created on trumpet and voice. Chet’s big break came, when, in 1952, he was chosen at an audition to play with Charlie Parker (Bird), making his debut at the Tiffany Club in Los Angeles. Chet's turbulent life came to a bizarre and tragic end on May 13, 1988 in Amsterdam. He fell from the open window of his hotel room, hitting the concrete two stories below. We dedicate this music to Chet wherever you are…Frank Tusa 2013 Frank Tusa, Vince Lateano and Al Plank recorded live with Chet Baker at the Great America Music Hall, San Francisco in 1982. Frank has also recorded and toured extensively with Chet in Europe.
