Conversations with Charlie Haden


235 Pgs.
Silman-James Press, Publ.

Charlie Haden (1937-2014)was the rare sort of musician who transcended easy categorization - other than to say that his uniquely elegant and eloquent bass playing, with its readily recognizable sound, defined a certain pinnacle of musical communication in beautiful, spontaneous, and intensely emotional ways. Throughout his career, he worked with and influenced many of the most interesting musicians of the second half of the twentieth century, including Ornette Coleman, Don Cherry, Paul Bley, Keith Jarrett, Paul Motion, Pat Metheny, Brad Mehldau, and hundreds of others. Here Haden discusses his life and politics and music and aesthetics in a series of candid interviews conducted over two decades. While parts of this collection have appeared in various periodicals, much of it is in print here for the first time.
