R.I.P. Charlie Haden

The news that bass player Charlie Haden died earlier today is truly sad news. One of the greatest of new generation bassists (Haden, actually, was 77 when he died but I'll always regard him as "New Generation"!)
Only last montth I reviewed his duo album with Keith Jarrett - ironically titled The Last Dance - never dreaming he had so little time left with us.
Forever remembered as the leader of the New Liberation Orchestra, one of the world's greatest bass players as been, finally, liberated.
Rest In Peace.
Obituary.
