The mission of the Chet Baker Foundation (based in his home state of Oklahoma) is to bring awareness through education and events to the life and art of Chet Baker.
Many pioneering artists and celebrities have accepted the invitation to share their love for Chet by joining The Foundation as Honorary Directors and Board members.; from Dave Brubeck, Quincy Jones, McCoy Tyner and Herbie Hancock to Sharon Stone, Hugh Hefner and Jeff Golblum....over 60 artists, thusfar. (Please see the honorary directors and board links below to read about them)
All are welcome to join and contribute...in the spirit of jazz improvisation...the spirit of music as a means to bring people together... and mostly in the romantic and unique artistic spirit of Chet Baker.
