The Book of Chet is Luciana's inspired interpretation of the music of trumpet player and singer Chet Baker. An iconoclastic musical figure, Chet had a unique and lyrical approach to singing - informed by his superb musicianship, his singing was heartfelt, yet detached. "It is a well known fact that musicians like João Gilberto were listening a lot to Chet Baker and the sounds coming out of the West Coast of the US. That kind of quiet, introspective singing was started by Chet while Miles' playing, tone and sensibility ended up influencing many musicians in Brazil."
