Weekend Video - Van Morrison & Chet Baker




In the tradition of Alec Soth's Friday Poem, here's the inaugural Weekend Video. It's Van Morrison's version of the Stephen Sondheim chestnut "Send in the Clowns". The trumpet player in the foreground is Chet Baker. It was recorded in London at Ronnie Scott's club in 1986 and turned out to be Baker's last live performance. There are two downloads of the clip on You Tube but as it's music, I chose the one with better sound and lesser picture.
