Chet Baker and LA Car Clubs

I think it goes without saying that Chet Baker was one of the coolest cats about town. Looked it up, and I had no idea he was buried just a few miles away in Inglewood. In case you were wondering, he died when he fell out of a hotel window in the Netherlands in 88. If that's not tragic, not sure what is. I stumbled on this video on youtube the other day. It's one of his best songs, and set to amazing footage of 50s Los Angeles Car Clubs. Not all that sure why the two were put together, but in a strange way, kinda glad they were.
