Charlie HadenComplete Charlie Haden On Black Saint & Soul Note (Old & New Dreams/ Tribute To Blackwell/Etudes/Silence/First Song) (5CD set) ... CD
Black Saint (Italy), Late 70s/1980s. Used 5CD ... $27.99
Seminal work from Charlie Haden – five albums recorded for the Black Saint/Soul Note label in the late 70s and 1980s – together representing some of Haden's most ambitious musical moments of the time! The first two records in the set – Old & New Dreams (1977) and Tribute To Blackwell (1987) –feature the excellent Old & New Dreams group – a very Ornette Coleman-styled ensemble with Dewey Redman on tenor, Don Cherry on pocket trumpet, Haden on bass, and Ed Blackwell on drums – all alumni of Coleman's group in past years, working here in very sharp-edged, angular modes that reflect that great legacy! Etudes (1988) is a wonderful trio set with Geri Allen on piano and Paul Motian on drums – very set free, rhythmically, and a record that almost points the way towards some of Haden's best musical growth in the 90s. Silence (1989) features a surprising late appearance by Chet Baker – in a group that also features Enrico Pieranunzi on piano and Billy Higgins on drums. Last up is First Song (1990), a trio date with Pieranunzi and Higgins, done with a sound that still has plenty of modern edges, but in a way that's quite different than the trio set of just two years before. All albums lovingly remastered, and packaged in a special box! CD

✨✧ Charlie HadenLiberation Music Orchestra (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Impulse (Germany), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
One of the most beautiful albums that Charlie Haden ever recorded – and if he only ever appeared on one record in his life, we'd still love him tremendously for this one! The album has a feel that's very much in keeping with both the "liberation" and "orchestra" in the title – "liberation", in that the music is filled with inspiration from South American sources, and has a strongly political feel at times; and "orchestra" because the group here is somewhat large, and filled with a tremendous array of expressive players – including Gato Barbieri on tenor, Dewey Redman on alto and tenor, Don Cherry on cornet and flutes, Michael Mantler on trumpet, Roswell Rudd on trombone, Robert Northern on French horn, Paul Motian and Andrew Cyrille on percussion, Carla Bley on piano, and Perry Robinson on clarinet. Haden leads these disparate talents through a set of tremendously focused music – filled with as many ideas as it is with a sense of humanity and soul – all to brilliantly point the way forward for the new sound of Impulse Records in the years after Coltrane's death! Titles include the classic "Song For Che", plus Ornette's "War Orphans", Carla Bley's "The Interlude", and "Song Of The United Front", by Hans Eisler, and with words by Brecht!

✨✧ Charlie Haden & Liberation Music OrchestraTime/Life ... CD
Impulse, 2016. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
The last Liberation Music Orchestra effort from the great Charlie Haden – offered up here in a set that brings together two live performances from a time when he was still on the planet, plus three more songs by the group on their own – working under the guidance of longtime musical partner Carla Bley! The set begins with a beautiful reworking of Miles Davis' "Blue In Green" – redone here by Haden and the group as a masterpiece of color and tone – and the record closes with a version of Haden's "Song For The Whales", both recorded with Charlie and the group in 2011. In between are three more new performances, post-Haden – the beautiful titles "Time Life/Silent Spring", and "Utviklingssang" – all of which really live up to that long legacy of amazing colors and tones that the group did so well. The two different slices of music come together beautifully, and make for a surprisingly unified set in the end. CD

✨✧ Lee Konitz & Charlie HadenSweet & Lovely ... CD
King (Japan), 1996. New Copy ... $16.99
We love the music of Lee Konitz to death, but we've always had a special spot in our hearts for the kind of records that feature the altoist in a really stripped-down setting – so that we can really enjoy his crisp tone, and strong sense of imagination! This album's definitely one of those gems – as it features just Lee on alto and Charlie Haden on bass – recorded beautifully in a live setting, with impeccable sound that really captures the special spirit of each player as they work together as a duo, then break out in these wonderfully soulful solos. Lee's tone is amazing – definitely at the top of his work from the time – and Haden is great, too – free from some of the more gimmicky modes of some of his later projects, and very fresh in the setting. Titles include "Just Friends", "Star Eyes", "How Deep Is The Ocean", "I'll Remember April", and "Yesterdays". CD

✨✧ Masahiko Togashi with Don Cherry & Charlie HadenSession In Paris ... CD
King (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $16.99
One of the greatest records ever from Japanese drummer Masahiko Togashi – a rare European session that features the talents of Don Cherry on trumpet and Charlie Haden on bass! The session's one of Cherry's most compelling performances from the time – a really loose and free date that could have easily been recorded a decade before – yet which also seems to have that new sense of warmth and spiritualism that Don brought to his best experiments in the 70s. And Togashi really brings this spiritual, soulful quality to the proceedings – using percussion in earthy and subtle ways that really let Haden's basslines come forward too! Titles include "Rain", "Song Of Soil", "June", "Oasis", and "Words Of Wind (parts 1 & 2)". CD

Alto sax and all around jazz legend Lee Konitz playing with a great group of players – drummer Paul Motian, double bassist Charlie Haden and pianist Brad Helhdau – captured live at New York's fabled Birdland, in December of 2009! There's really no need to qualify assessments of Konitz's performance with a note about his age, he simply sounds terrific here on a set that's fairly easygoing in approach, but still quite dexterous! Includes fresh, unique takes on "Loverman", "Lullaby Of Birdland", "Solar", "I Fall In Love Too Easily", "You Stepped Out Of A Dream" and "Oleo". CD

✨✧ Ornette ColemanEmpty Foxhole ... LP
Blue Note, 1966. Very Good ... $19.99
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 ColemanTribes Of New York ... LP

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

✨✧ John ColtraneJupiter Variation – The Mastery Of John Coltrane Vol 3 ... LP
Impulse, 1966/1967. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
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!

Pat Metheny80/81 ... LP
ECM, 1980. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
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".

Archie SheppMama Too Tight ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $39.99
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

✨✧ Alice ColtraneJourney In Satchidananda ... LP
Impulse, 1971. Fair Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Arguably the most classic Alice Coltrane album on Impulse – and a strong group effort that features some great work from Pharoah Sanders! Coltrane leads two different small combos on the record – both with Sanders on saxes, plus either Cecil McBee or Charlie Haden on bass, and Rashied Ali on drums – plus assorted percussion from Tulsi and Majid Shabazz, and some really enigmatic work on oud by Vishnu Wood! Tracks are long and drawn out, and open with the beauty of a field of flowers meeting the dawn – as Alice plays with a sound that's gentle and poetic, but which also has some wonderfully dark undertones. Titles include "Stopover Bombay", "Isis & Osiris", "Shiva-Loka", and "Journey In Satchidananda". LP, Vinyl record album
(NOTE: FAIR CONDITION. Cover has moderate wear, waviness from moisture and some masking tape along the seams. Vinyl plays with some clicks & crackles.)

✨✧ Keith JarrettMourning Of A Star ... CD
Atlantic (UK), 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Keith Jarrett's really pushing himself here – playing piano with some of the freewheeling qualities that would make him a huge new talent in the 70s, and also picking up some other instruments as well! Although the set's billed to a trio – Jarrett with Charlie Haden on bass and Paul Motian on drums – the overall sound is way more than just your usual piano record, thanks to Keith's use of soprano sax, steel drums, congas, and tape recorder – elements that fill the tunes in alongside his piano, and create some really surprising moments. Some tracks are beautifully warm and personal – the kind of lyrical modes that could have made Jarrett a huge mainstream act, had he ever wanted to be more overtly commercial – and these are balanced nicely with the more experimental numbers, to keep a nice edge in the set. Titles include a nice version of Joni Mitchell's "All I Want", plus originals by Jarrett that include "Standing Outside", "Traces Of You", "Trust", "Interlude No 3", and "Mourning Of A Star". CD

Contemporary, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent 70s side from Art Pepper – recorded with a West Coast rhythm section that includes Hampton Hawes, Charlie Haden, and Shelly Manne! The trio all play here with a remarkable intensity, given the date of the session – and although the production's got that later, crisper Contemporary tone, it still lets Art's horn come through beautifully! Pepper's singular voice and beautiful phrasing are still intact, and the quartet cooks nicely on half a dozen numbers, mostly Pepper originals – "Ophelia", "Here's That Rainy Day", "What Laurie Likes", "Mr Yohe, "Lost Life", and "Samba Mom-Mom".

✨✧ Don CherryRelativity Suite ... LP
JCOA, 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of Don Cherry's most spiritual, far-reaching projects – a wonderful record that builds both on his key avant work of the 60s, and some of the globally-inspired sounds he was cutting overseas! This date was done in close collaboration with the New York underground of the time – and the large group features work from a rich array of great musicians – including Charles Brackeen on soprano and alto sax, Carlos Ward on alto, Frank Lowe and Dewey Redman on tenors, Charlie Haden on bass, Carla Bley on piano, and Ed Blackwell on drums – working with additional string and percussion players in a sound that's completely sublime! There's a great ear here for unusual sonic twists and turns, yet these are mixed with some deeper organic tones, and some freer jazz passages – all to really ignite a great fire as the set rolls on. Titles include "March Of The Hobbits", "Tantra", "Desireless", "Infinite Gentleness", and "Trans-Love Airways". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ornette ColemanScience Fiction (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia/ORG, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Alice ColtraneTranslinear Light ... CD
Impulse, 2004. Used ... Out Of Stock
Mindblowing work from Alice Coltrane – an album of incredible beauty that easily sits with the best of her classic early recordings for Impulse! The album's got a spare, contemplative quality, but it's also never sleepy – and instead steps forth with the tonal building and modal moving styles of classics albums like Ptah The El Daoud and Huntington Ashram Monastery. Most tracks feature a trio or quartet – with players that include Ravi Coltrane on saxes, Jack DeJohnette on drums, and Charlie Haden on bass. Alice plays some great Wurlitzer organ on a few cuts – getting this really wonderful "flat" tone to the instrument, one that almost has the same spiritual undertones as a harmonium. The whole thing's great – far better than we could have expected – and titles include "Sita Ram", "Translinear Light", "This Train", "Blue Nile", "Triloka", and "Crescent". CD

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)" and "Remorse". CD

Atlantic, Early 60s/1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
Great lost work from Ornette Coleman – material recorded in New York and LA during the years 1959 through 1961 – never issued at the time, but pulled together in this wonderful package at the start of the 70s! Although not recorded as an official album, the record stands easily with the best Ornette had to offer at Atlantic Records – and all tracks here have that sense of sharpness, rhythm, and timing that made the Coleman combo one of the most exciting of the time. Players include Ornette on alto throughout, plus Don Cherry on trumpet and pocket trumpet, Ed Blackwell and Billy Higgins on drums, and Charlie Haden (mostly), Scott LaFaro, and Jimmy Garrison on bass. All tracks are originals by Ornette – and titles include "Moon Inhabitants", "The Fifth of Beethoven", "Circle with a Hole In the Middle", and "The Alchemy of Scott La Faro", featuring the great late bassist, Scott La Faro!

They perform two extended numbers, "Peace One" and "Peace Two", both modal free-ish excursions.

ECM, 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
Paul Motian didn't always record that much as a leader, but the dates under his own name are always compelling ones – and quite a change from his more famous work with Bill Evans! This set is a sparkling showcase of original tunes by Motian – played by a shifting array of players that includes Charlie Haden on bass, Sam Brown on guitar, Keith Jarrett on piano and flute, and Leroy Jenkins on violin – all with a much freer, more out sound than you might expect to hear on ECM in later years. The set's one of the standouts from the time when the label was nodding more in the free jazz directions of some of their European contemporaries – and Motion proves to be a surprisingly great choice for the session. Titles include "Georgian Bay", "Ch'I Energy", "Rebica", "Conception Vessel", and "American Indian Song Of Sitting Bull". CD
