Lost in a Dream – Adelaide Cabaret Festival


Dunstan Playhouse
Adelaide Festival Centre, Festival Dr, Adelaide

23 Jun 23

Prolific Australian trumpeter, singer, and composer/arranger Roscoe James Irwin (The Cat Empire, The Bamboos) presents a hauntingly beautiful journey through the sounds and songs of one of the most revered yet tortured figures in popular jazz history, Chet Baker.

Once upon a time considered the James Dean of Jazz, Chet’s struggle and decline led to what was ultimately a tragic story yet the legacy of love and West Coast Cool he left behind has resonated for decades since. Joined by a jazz trio and string orchestra, Irwin will present his own gorgeous reworkings of Baker’s classic material, with all the cinematic romance, heartbreak, and soul of 1950s California.

We would like to acknowledge the Kaurna people as the custodians of the lands and waters of the Adelaide region.
