1000 SONGS - DAY 325 SONG # 356

DAY 325: Bring It On, Mr. Bassman! Remembering Charlie Haden

Charlie Haden (1937-2014), born in the Midwest (Missouri), died in the Far West (California) yesterday. One important Jazzman, he played the double bass in bands and orchestras with likes of Ornette Coleman,  Keith Jarrett, Archie Shepp or Carla Bley, to name but a few. Here is a swinging tune called "Ginger Blues" recorded in 1995, with Ginger Baker on drums and Bill Frisell on guitar; this is very "elastic" due to the great bass-lines of Mr. Haden. There is also a solo done by him on that one. May he rest in peace!
