Charlie Haden was a wonderful musician whose music touched me deeply. I am grateful for having seen him live withn Ornette Coleman and listened to his many beautiful recordings. Sending best regards to his family. Thanks Charlie. I’ll play my drums in your honor.

Bookmark and Share So sad about Charlie’s death; this one really hurts. I can’t imagine a better tribute to Charlie Haden than this Fresh Air radio program which aired yesterday and is streamable here: http://www.npr.org/2014/07/18/...lie-haden-remembered ---- Terry Gross and her staff have outdone themselves; it’s apparent how much she loves and respects Haden’s artistry and humanity. Even though polio at age 15 put a stop to his singing career (and launched his career as a bassist), Gross was inadvertently responsible for his slight return to singing by asking him to sing Now Is the Hour (Haere Ra), a Maori farewell song that he had previously recorded playing the melody on bass. This lovely radio moment sparked his singing Wayfaring Stranger on his album The Art of the Song, accompanied only by Alan Broadbent’s profoundly gorgeous string arrangement: ---- I’m going there to see my mother/She said she’d meet me when I come/I’m only going over Jordan/I’m only going over home ---- The tribute ends with this recording, and if you aren’t in tears by the end of it, consult a physician!

Bookmark and Share Pat’s 80/81 podcast on the main page is a great listen and there’s a portion where Charlie comments on the record and Pat. I can’t believe that album is 33 years old, everyone sounds fantastic. I still remember buying it. Those were the days (at least where I lived) that you had no idea what new record might show up total unexpectedly as 80/81 did for me.

Bookmark and Share Movie guy Jack Black is married to one of Mr. Hadens’ daughters. When I heard Mr. Black being interviewed he said that when he first met Charlie, Charlie said that he had never heard of him and his movie work. He also said that as long as you both love each other.............that is the most important thing. Jack described how Mr. Haden was the consummate class act and loving father. He said that Mr. Haden was a study of concentration and total devotion to the art of jazz and making music. Rest in piece Mr. Haden..............I loved your music.

Bookmark and Share I fell in love with Charlie’s playing back on Arbour Zena in the 70s. It’s hard to find apt things to say at the moment, so I’ll just put on Last Dance and listen. May Charlie’s spirit of equanimity and blessing remain....

Bookmark and Share Another true Jazz legend has left us, this time way to soon. He left us with a huge discography that covered many genres. I first saw him with Pat Metheny during the 80/81 tour. I had a brief conversation with him at the jazz club. Then while living in San Diego I saw his Quartet West. Both times he was incredible. He also was much more than a musician who seemed on a mission to make the world a better place.
