✨✧ Charlie Haden/Hampton HawesAs Long As There's Music ... LP
Artists House, 1978. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Spare duets between Haden and Hawes – just bass and piano, with nothing else to hold them up! The tracks are long and wonderfully introspective – a good example of how much Hawes' sound had grown in the 70s, and really offering some nice moody work from Haden on bass. Titles include "As Long As There's Music", "This Is Called Love", "Hello Goodbye", and "Rain Forest". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Keith Jarrett with Charlie Haden & Jan GarbarekArbour Zena ... CD
ECM (Germany), 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful large-concept album from Keith Jarrett – one that features his piano, the bass of Charlie Haden, and the tenor and soprano sax of Jan Garbarek as the main solo instruments over larger string orchestrations! There's a sense of excitement to the record right from the start – well, not excitement that you'd get in other jazz-based styles – but kind of a sense of hope, drama, and unfolding that really shades the record nicely – and gives it a different flavor from some of Jarrett's other larger form projects of the time – possibly creating the first really unified, extended musical vision he brought to a record like this in the 70s. Beautiful sounds throughout – with titles that include "Runes", "Solara March", and "Mirrors". CD

✨✧ Joe HendersonAn Evening With Joe Henderson, Charlie Haden, Al Foster ... CD
Red (Italy), 1987. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Spare, stretched-out work from tenorist Joe Henderson – one of his hippest recordings of the 80s, and a great live date recorded with just bass and drums for accompaniment! Henderson's horn is heard in great company with the bass of Charlie Haden and drums of Al Foster – both players who really know what to do with the extra time allotted them in the extended setting of the record – making the set a great showcase not just for Joe's raspy tone on tenor, but for their own beyond-rhythm talents as well! The whole thing's great – easygoing and open, but with a really dark edge – and titles include "Ask Me Now", "Serenity", "Beatrice", and "Invitation". CD

Don CherryArt Deco ... LP
A&M, 1989. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A late, straight side from Cherry, and a nice one at that! Cherry's joined by West Coast jazz men from his past James Clay, Charlie Haden And Billy Higgins, for a nice set with standards intermingled with the group's own tunes and a couple of Ornette numbers, too. The readings are crisp yet expansive, with these elder statesman delivering performances that betray the confidence they've built up over many years of playing. 10 tracks in all: "Art Deco", 'When Will The Blues Leave", "Body & Soul", "Bemsha Swing", "Maffy", "Folk Medley", "The Blessing", "Passing", "I've Grown Accustomed To Your Face" and "Compute".

Ornette ColemanEmpty Foxhole ... LP
Blue Note, 1966. Very Good+ ... $16.99
One of our favorite Ornette Coleman albums of the post-Atlantic 60s years – a set that still hangs onto some of the bold rhythmic conception of his previous records, but also points the way towards his freer jazz modes to come! The group's a trio – with really tremendous work from Charlie Haden on bass, able to match Coleman's energy with effortless ease, and really getting a lot of room to leave his mark on the music – plus the very young (10!) Denardo Coleman, who plays drums here with this stark, simple style that's not only completely unique, but which also leaves a lot of open room left for Haden and Ornette to really stretch out. Ornette plays his usual alto, plus trumpet and violin – and titles include "Good Old Days", "The Empty Foxhole", "Zig Zag", and "Freeway Express". LP, Vinyl record album

Ornette ColemanIn All Languages ... LP
Caravan Of Dreams, 1987. Sealed 2LP Gatefold ... $16.99
2 LP set of material from the mid 80's – one featuring Ornette reunited with his classic quartet of Don Cherry, Charlie Haden, and Billy Higgins; the other with his Prime Time group that included Bern Nix, Jamaaladeen Tacuma, and Denardo Coleman. The whole set's a "30 Years Of Harmelodic Music" tribute, and includes the tracks "Space Church", "In All Languages", "Latin Genetics", "Peace Warriors", "Music News", and "Feet Music". Some tracks are done by both bands, and are a good illustration of how Ornette's style had grown in the 30 year period. LP, Vinyl record album

Ornette ColemanScience Fiction (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia/ORG, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 29.99
One of Ornette Coleman's best recordings from the 70s – and like his other album for Columbia, quite a change from the freewheeling sounds he was blowing over at Blue Note! The style here is a bit more high concept, but in a good way – with all the edges that Coleman had developed from the late 50s onward, brought into tighter focus for the Columbia setting – given a bit more complexity, although still with plenty of room for freedom – and played both with a smaller combo, and a slightly larger group. The mix of players is as striking as the sounds on the record – and includes Coleman on alto, trumpet, and violin – plus Dewey Redman on tenor, Don Cherry on pocket trumpet, Bobby Bradford on trumpet, Jim Hall on guitar, Cedar Walton on piano, Charlie Haden on bass, and Billy Higgins and Ed Blackwell on drums. Asha Pulthi sings a bit on the larger ensemble tracks – making a rare appearance here before her 70s soul career in Germany – and titles include "What Reason Could I Give", "Street Woman", "The Jungle Is A Skycraper", and "All My Life".

Ornette ColemanSoapsuds Soapsuds ... LP
Artists House, 1979. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
One of Ornette's great albums for the obscure Artists House label, and different from the one that he recorded with James Blood Ulmer, which was more of a straight-on Harmelodic work. This one's got him playing a set of tender sensitive duets with bassist and longtime accompanyist Charlie Haden. The set's far from mellow, though, and the two of them work through a great set of material that includes "Sex Spy", "Soap Suds", and the theme to "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman"! LP, Vinyl record album

Ornette ColemanTo Whom Who Keeps A Record ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1959/1960. Used ... $4.99
Essential Ornette Coleman – and some great rare material pulled from his early days at Atlantic Records! The sides were recorded in 1959 and 1960 – but never issued until this format, a rare mid 70s album that was only issued in Japan! Despite that obscurity, though, the material is tremendous – on a par with Coleman's more familiar Atlantic albums – and every bit as essential as the revived lost sides on the albums Twins and Art Of The Improvisers! Ornette's working here with his classic quartet that included Don Cherry on trumpet, Charlie Haden on bass, and either Ed Blackwell or Billy Higgins on drums – and the album features 7 tracks, titled as a statement – "Music Always", "Brings Goodness", "To Us", "All", "PS Unless One Has", "Some Other", "Motive for Its Use". Brilliant – and very true in this case! CD

✨✧ Keith JarrettBop-Be ... LP
Impulse, 1978. Very Good+ ... $4.99
No bebop here, despite what you might guess from the title – and instead an album of much freer lines and wider musical vision, captured with Keith Jarrett's famous group of the 70s! Jarrett plays a bit of soprano sax alongside his piano, and the rest of the quartet features Dewey Redman on tenor and musette, Charlie Haden on bass, and Paul Motian on drums and percussion – all in a mode that's somewhat quieter and not as earthy as their early 70s sides together, but still filled with the great sense of interplay that made the group a noteworthy one. Titles include "Pyramids Moving", "Mushi Mushi", "Silence", "Gotta Get Some Sleep", and "Blackberry Winter". LP, Vinyl record album

Keith JarrettSomewhere Before ... CD
Atlantic, 1968. Used ... $3.99
A wonderful illustration of the inherent sense of beauty in Keith Jarrett's early work – an approach to piano that was simple, straightforward, and marked by a ringing sense of tone that's evident in the very first note of the set! Jarrett here isn't trying to break any rules in jazz piano, nor is he trying to go out of his way to make the world known of his presence – and instead, he's got a simple, subtle approach to the keys that's filled with tenderness and gentle tones – but not in a way that's hokey or overly sentimental. There's certainly echoes here of 60s work by Steve Kuhn, and of earlier records by Vince Guaraldi – but Jarrett also hints at a bold power underneath that seems likely to break out at every turn. The album's a live recording, with Charlie Haden on bass and Paul Motian on drums – and titles include "A Moment For Tears", "Pout's Over", "My Back Pages", "Pretty Ballad", "Moving Soon", "Old Rag", and "Dedicated To You".

Pat Metheny80/81 ... LP
ECM, 1980. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
One of the most striking Pat Metheny albums of the period – as the set features the guitarist working with an all-star group that actually features 2 horn players! The group's a quintet, with Dewey Redman and Michael Brecker on tenor sax – blowing in open and spacious modes that complement the sound of Metheny's guitar nicely and really give the set a different feel. The rest of the group features Charlie Haden on bass and Jack De Johnette on drums – and the double space of the set is well used on a set of tracks that includes "Two Folk Songs", "The Bat", "Turnaround", "Open", "Pretty Scattered", and "Goin Ahead".

Roswell RuddEverywhere ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Very Good Gatefold ... $11.99
One of the greatest albums ever from trombonist Roswell Rudd – an early Impulse Records session, cut right at a time when Rudd was a crucial part of the New York "new thing" scene in the 60s! The album's almost more of an ESP session from its lineup – which includes Giuseppi Logan on flute and bass clarinet, Robin Kenyatta on alto sax, Charlie Haden and Lewis Worrell on bass, and Beaver Harris on drums – yet the overall feel of the record has more of the control and sense of vision we've come to love on Impulse – the mix of structure and freedom you might find in crucial 60s recordings by Marion Brown or Archie Shepp on the label – particularly the latter's Fire Music generation! Titles include "Respects", "Satan's Dance", "Everywhere", and "Yankee No How". LP, Vinyl record album

Archie SheppMama Too Tight ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Growing brilliance from the young Archie Shepp – a record that's not just about Archie's own amazing work on the tenor, but also his keen modern vision as a leader! The combo here is an ensemble that features some of the hippest modernists of the 60s – Roswell Rudd and Grachan Moncur on trombone, Perry Robinson on clarinet, Howard Johnson on tuba, Charlie Haden on bass, and Tommy Turrentine on trumpet – making a rare non-bop appearance here, and further enforcing our already-high estimation of his talents! The style's somewhat in the "new thing" mode of the period, but it's also a bit more tightly arranged too – almost hitting Mingus-like modes for the bigger ensemble – balancing the force of the group together with very free, bold solo impulses from the players. Side one features the extended "Portrait Of Robert Thompson (As A Young Man)" – and side two features "Mama Too Tight", "Theme For Ernie", and "Basheer". LP, Vinyl record album

Jeanne Dielman, 1960. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare work from sessions that Ornette Coleman cut for Atlantic Records at the start of the 60s – selections that feature his classic quartet with Charlie Haden on bass, Don Cherry on trumpet, and Ed Blackwell on drums! The tracks here have that riveting, romping blend of rhythm and improvisation that made Coleman so revolutionary during these years – presented at a level that's really pushing the boundaries, but never goes nearly as far outside as Ornette's later work – a wonderful blend of modernism and swing that makes us love these years of his music so much! Titles include "Tribes Of New York", "I Heard It Over The Radio", "Revolving Door", "Fifth Of Beethoven", and "Mr & Mrs People". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Keith JarrettBirth ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A generous 1971 effort from Keith Jarrett – backed up by his incredible, multi-instrumentalist co-horts Dewey Redman (tenor sax, clarinet, bells, percussion and more), Charlie Haden (bass, congas, clappers, steel drum) and Paul Motion (drums and percussion). The pieces cover a pretty far range of styles – from the meandering and mellow Jarrett piano that begins "Birth", to the wonderful, heaving funky bass work on "Mortgage On My Soul (Wah Wah)" – which also includes some squalling soprano sax by Jarrett, who gives the piano a rest for this wild tune! Later on the album, he picks up a banjo, too! Other tracks include "Spirit", "Forget Your Memories (And They'll Remind You)", "Markings" and "Remorse". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ornette ColemanShape Of Jazz To Come (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Atlantic, 1959. Used (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An album that certainly lives up to the promise of its title – as it's filled with amazing instrumentation, groundbreaking compositions, and a sound in jazz that few ears could imagine at the time! The groove here is extremely modal – all instruments rolling along on the same rhythmic pulse, with drums, bass, trumpet, and alto sax incredibly intertwined! Ornette's really got an edge on his instrument – cutting even more deeply here than the clipped, punctuated cornet work of Don Cherry – and the rhythm team of Charlie Haden and Billy Higgins are simply amazing – not just keeping up with the energy of Ornette, but also really helping facilitate it as well! Titles include the haunting "Lonely Woman", plus "Peace", "Chronology", and "Focus on Sanity". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John ColtraneJupiter Variation – The Mastery Of John Coltrane Vol 3 ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1966/1967. Used ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic late Coltrane work – recorded in 1966 and 1967, but not issued until this release from 1978! The record features 4 tracks from the golden years. Two cuts – "Leo" and "Jupiter (Variations)" feature Coltrane playing spare, beautiful duets with Rashied Ali on drums. The track "Number One" features Trane in a quartet with Alice Coltrane on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Ali on drums. And "Peace On Earth" features Alice, Charlie Haden, Ali, and Pharoah Sanders. It was previously issued with overdubbed strings on the World Galaxy album – but it's issued here in the better stripped-down version. Very nice – and essential Coltrane material! CD

✨✧ John Coltrane & Don CherryAvant-Garde ... LP
Atlantic, 1960. Used ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful meeting of two major talents from the left end of jazz – recorded in the early 60's when both were working for Atlantic! Despite the "avant garde" title, this set is straighter than you'd expect – very much in the spirit of Coltrane's work for the label, but with perhaps some of the more angular styles that Cherry was laying down with Ornette Coleman at the time. The session has Coltrane joining Ornette's group of Don Cherry, Charlie Haden, and Ed Blackwell – save for a few numbers that feature Percy Heath on bass instead of Haden. The set includes great readings of Ornette's "The Blessing", "The Invisible", and "Focus On Sanity", and Coltrane plays both soprano sax and tenor! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Joe Henderson with Alice ColtraneElements (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Milestone/OJC, 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest Joe Henderson albums of the 70s – a suite of tracks dedicated to the four elements – and served up with some great accompaniment from Alice Coltrane! The style here is a wonderful mix of Coltrane's spirituality and Henderson's down-to-earth soulfulness – in a style that recalls some of the best moments on Coltrane's sublime Ptah The El Daoud album – a set in which Henderson's tenor was a key part. At times, Joe blows with a bit of Coltrane-like searching – but at others, he's bringing up more of a rhythmic pulse that really gives Alice a great focus – using her piano, harp, and harmonium alongside bass by Charlie Haden, violin from Michael White, and percussion from Ndugu Chancler and Baba Daru Oshu. Titles are named after the four elements – "Fire", "Air", "Water", and "Earth". CD

✨✧ Keith JarrettByablue ... LP
Impulse, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
There's a nicely warming vibe on this album from Keith Jarrett – a sound that's sometimes a bit more laidback and personal, but which is still carried off with familiar associates Dewey Redman on tenor, Charlie Haden on bass, and Paul Motian on drums! Most of the tunes are shorter compositions built around gently lyrical lines – somewhat introspective, and a bit less organic than in years past – but in a way that more than makes up for that difference with their own inner beauty. Titles include "Konya", "Rainbow", "Trieste", "Fantasm", "Yahllah", and "Byablue". LP, Vinyl record album
