Zwei Jazztitanen im intimen Zusammenspiel. Charlie Haden spielte Bass in Keith Jarretts 1. Quartett 1968. Zum 65. Geburtstag des Pianisten trafen sie sich eigentlich zur Vorbereitung eines Filmprojektes, heraus kam auch diese wunderbare CD. äSeit über 30 Jahren hatten Haden und Jarrett nicht zusammengespielt - und hier nun hört man sie kommunizieren wie 2 eng Vertraute, die abends bei einem Wein zusammensitzen und voller gelöster Tiefgründigkeit von ihrem Leben und ihren Sehnsüchten erzählen. Sie brauchen einander nichts zu erklären - jeder versteht sofort die kleinste Andeutung. Es scheint einer jener seltenen Momente zu sein, in denen es um nichts mehr geht und deshalb um ganz viel ... Und da hier zwei grosse Musiker ganz ohne Klischees und ohne den geringsten Anflug von Kitsch Stimmungen bis in die kleinste Nuance auskosten, die Stücke so spielen, wie nur sie beide in eben dieser Kombination es können, und dabei stets ganz nah an den Originalthemen der Songs bleiben, ist hier eine stille Jazz-Sensation entstanden. Fürs Herz, für den Kopf - und für die Sammlungä (; CD-Tipp)
Free jazz a collective improvisation by Ornette Coleman Double Quartet( Recording )
13 editions published between 1961 and 2002 in 4 languages and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"By 1961, when Free Jazz was released, alto saxophonist and composer Ornette Coleman was infamous in the jazz world. His searing alto sax and full-ensemble take on melody were assailed by critics. Free Jazz only furthered Coleman's infamy, with its seamless, seemingly atonal high energy and wholesale lack of a melodic or harmonic center. For the session, Coleman assembled two complete quartets and had them play the same music opposite each other, with diving power and a kind of strange grace usually associated with acoustic blues. The music is raw and incisive, with sharp tones and biting solos appearing amidst propulsive rhythms that still seem whispery in their swishing shuffle. This recording helped cast the 1960s--and every decade since--in jazz. It drew a line in the sand, and critics, fans, and musicians are still haggling over the line today."--Andrew Bartlett

Sophisticated ladies by Charlie Haden Quartet West( Recording )
13 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Founded in the mid-Eighties by bassist Charlie Haden, Quartet West was and still is, undisputedly, one of the most elegant and coherent small-groups in contemporary jazz. Together with Ernie Watts on tenor saxophone, Alan Broadbent on piano and Larance Marable on drums, Haden resuscitated and modernized a typically Californian way of playing the "jazz game", one made of softness, sophistication and sensual clarity. The quartets six recordings "Quartet West" (1987), "In Angel City" (1988), "Haunted Heart" (1992), "Always say Goodbye" (1994), "Now Is the Hour" (1996) and "The Art Of Song" (1999) can all be read as autobiographical, melancholy plunges into the intimate recesses of the bassist's imagination: as many chapters of some dreamlike auto-fiction that multiplies the connexions and relations between Californian jazz of the immediate post-war period, and Hollywood during the same era, which was marked notably by the deadly sophistication of the great noir films. This is a sensual, nostalgic drift through the subconscious of one of the greatest musicians in contemporary jazz. The new release by Quartet West 'Sophisticated Ladies' not only finds the group with a new drummer (Rodney Green), but as well in the company of some of the greatest female vocalists of our time Cassandra Wilson, Diana Krall, Melody Gardot, Norah Jones, Renee Fleming and Charlie's wife, Ruth Cameron
