A tribute to an iconic musical legend
Tim Draxl presents a resonant, haunting and exhilarating candid tribute to musical icon Chet Baker at Riverside Theatres for one performance only on Saturday 27 April.
Take a trip through the life and songs of the celebrated jazz crooner with this dazzling musical biography, the acclaimed Tim Draxl performs with a full live band. Riverside is proud to bring you this critically-acclaimed show that enjoyed a ‘standing room only’ season in The Melbourne Festival.
Chet Baker was the prototype of 20th-century cool. His movie-star looks and honeyed vocals won him pop stardom, and his effortless trumpet style earned the respect of the jazz elite; his well-known struggle with drugs brought it all crashing down.
In Freeway: The Chet Baker Journey, international cabaret award winner, Tim Draxl, finds a living interpretation of a singularly complex figure, illuminating Baker’s life of tormented stardom to expose the haunting mood and delicate nuance of his finest work. Backed by a hand-picked live band, Draxl channels the Prince of Cool through renditions of his best-loved songs, including My Funny Valentine, Let’s Get Lost, These Foolish Things, Look for the Silver Lining, There Will Never Be Another You and You Don’t Know What Love Is.
