"There's a lot of (deleted) attitude's goin' on here," Chet Baker growls, annoyed, during a late-night, late-in-his-life recording session. Amen. "Let's Get Lost" (at the Nuart through June 3) runs on attitude, on surface, on an adoration of beauty and a horrified fascination with the loss of that beauty. It's a phony Valentine, an exploitation of the ruined old junkie that Baker had become, done with the complete complicity of Baker himself. Why wouldn't Baker be an accomplice?

Photographer Bruce Weber won't be made to feel guilty about those controversial, blatantly sexual ads for Ralph Lauren and Obsession from Calvin Klein. "I'm not tired at all of doing fashion. People always ask me," he says with a laugh, although there was his recent non-fashion show of human figures at New York's Robert Miller Gallery. But lately, too, he's stretched out a bit by becoming a movie maker.
