Chet Baker – She Was Too Good To Me (1974)

Whilst studying in Italy, I went on a day trip to Bologna. In the Bologna city centre, in the Quadrilatero, there is a street known as “La strada del Jazz” (Jazz Street), named after the gold stars dedicated to the greatest Jazz players of all time. I stumbled across the gold star of my favourite jazz artist Chet Baker. The next day in the Florence city centre I went into a used record store and found the “She Was Too Good To Me” album. I’d never seen it before and had never been able to find in on vinyl in Australia. The owner of the store even gave me a discount on the album after I told him the story of the day before. I also got a tattoo of Chet to remember the whole experience.
