We always bike pass or walk pass this plaque. After we saw a documentary about Chet Baker, we realised he often was in Amsterdam and died here too. Sad. So this relief is a beautiful homage to a talented jazz musician.

It's a way to honour a great jazz musician who was stoned after using marihuana and fell down from his hotel window.

The plaque honours Chet Baker, the jazz musician, who fell to his death from a hotel window. Bob Hagen of the Jazz Impuls society raised the funding privately and deserves credit for this modest and cool memorial.

saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
