Early 2016, trumpeter Edu Ninck Blok issued the CD Traces of Chesney / A tribute to Chet Baker (Silence! Records). Ninck Blok worked with Baker both on stage and in the recording studio, most notably when Baker guested with Ninck Blok’s Amstel Octet (The Amstel Octet & Chet Baker, Challenge Records). Both albums feature drummer and Baker veteran John Engels as well.
Jeroen de Valk has written a biography of Baker which is available in several languages: Chet Baker: His Life and Music is the English translation. Other biographies include James Gavin's Deep In A Dream - "The Long Night of Chet Baker", and Matthew Ruddick's "Funny Valentine". Baker's "lost memoirs" are available in the book "As Though I Had Wings", which includes an introduction by Carroll Baker.
