Wanna hear an amazing solo by Chet?

    What an amazing talent he was. But you know, whenever I listen to his music or watch his videos, I always come away feeling a heavy sadness in my heart.

    Playing on through these trumpet licks is the easy part. Coming off from the addiction is nearly impossible. Chet, like so many other in the era, just did not have time or the support needed to survive the latter challenge.



  • Well, actually, this is from a concert in Japan who had harsh drug laws. Chet was so paranoid, that he didn't use hard drugs on this trip, rather Methadone. According to some of his band mates, Chet played more coherently and with longer lines that he often, otherwise, did.



  • Yes, on the Japan tour Chet played with a Dutch bass player and drummer cause he lived in Amsterdam then. They are great and very experienced players BTW. They had him on a complete methadon program that is quite standard in Holland but was less easy in Japan but they made it.

    So sad he could not stay on that program. And today the success rate of Suboxone and counseling is over 80%! This is why I expanded my DEA license to include the Subpxone waver. So now I have the XO- notification in front of me DEA number.
