LA in the 50's: Notorious gangster Mickey Cohen has just been put away for tax evasion, and now a bunch of his heroin is missing. Outside wise guys would love to move in on Mickey's territory; Captain Dudley Smith of the LAPD has launched a special squad to deal with them. Violent, thuggish team member Bud White's partner is murdered during a robbery at The Nite Owl coffee shop. The responding officer is rising star Detective Lieutenant Ed Exley, whose investigation intersects with that of Detective Jack Vincennes. Their leads point to Pierce Patchett, a drug dealing pimp whose prostitutes are surgically altered to look like movie stars. Nothing is as it seems in the glittering city of Angels, which, despite its open streets and warm welcoming air, is a city constructed of secrets. As Hollywood scandal sheet editor Sid Hudgens says, some things in L.A. are always going to be "Off the record, on the QT, and very hush-hush."

The best of Chet Baker plays by Chet Baker( Sound Recording )
22 editions published between 1992 and 1997 in 5 languages and held by 285 libraries worldwide
This 1953-1956 compilation represents Chet Baker's early days recording in Los Angeles. The album is about tightly arranged, uptempo burning than midtempo cool. Of course, Baker's introspective ballad playing is also featured on tracks such as "Moonlight Becomes You" and "Darn that Dream". Overall, however, what makes Baker's conception so unique in his early years, is the light, yet crisp, feel he and his band mates employ. Whether playing bebop or cool, his approach is consistent and, most of all, innovative. In short, it shows Baker's adaptability as well as his versatility

"In den 1950er-Jahren galt der US-amerikanische Jazz-Trompeter und Sänger Chet Baker (1929-1988) als "James Dean des Jazz", bis er dieses Image durch seine Heroinsucht ruinierte. Die fiktional unterfütterte Künstlerbiografie zeichnet weniger Bakers Karriere nach, sondern handelt eher davon, welche Entscheidungen ein Künstler zu treffen hat, im Fall Baker entweder für Drogen oder für Musik. Aufbauend auf Bakers biografischen Tiefpunkt, als er 1966 in Italien ins Gefängnis musste, entwickelt das in der Hauptrolle hingebungsvoll gespielte Drama eine Comeback-Geschichte ... [...]" []
