Unitarian Church in Westport's Voices Cafe will present "Double Entendre: A Tribute to Chet Baker" at 8 p.m. Saturday, May 11, in the church's sanctuary, 10 Lyons Plains Road.

The show, a musical homage to the late American jazz trumpeter, flugelhornist and vocalist, will feature five jazz musicians playing Baker's songs, including "My Funny Valentine" and "Let's Get Lost."

The performers include trumpet player Chris Brown, vocalist Kim Oler, pianist Nick Bariluk, bassist David Snyder and drummer Bob Leonard, according to a news release.

The event's proceeds will benefit the church's social justice programs.
