Excerpt from France Inter radio show L'HUMEUR VAGABONDE "Chet Baker thinks of his art": "A few years ago, at the age of 17, Robin Mansanti fell in love with Chet Baker, watching a video of his" Live at Ronnie Scott's ". That day, he decided to become a trumpet player. He learned to play on his own, or rather, with Chet: by watching how he pressed the pistons. It is a silent dialogue, a love story between a dead genius and a gifted young man, a story of companionship and admiration.
