CHARLIE HADEN R.I.P. 1937-2014
Charlie Haden, a legendary jazz bassist and original member of the Ornette Coleman Quartet, died on Friday (July 11, 2014) after a prolonged battle with an undisclosed illness, according to his label, ECM. He was 76. Born in Shenandoah, Iowa in 1937 and raised on a farm, Haden helped to revolutionize double bass playing in jazz music as a member of saxophonist Coleman’s free jazz quartet in the late 1950s. A bout with polio at 15 damaged nerves in Haden’s vocal cords and ended his singing career, but he continued to play the bass. Haden also collaborated with artists like John Coltrane, Don Cherry, Alice Coltrane, Billy Higgins, Chet Baker and Pat Metheny, among many others. In 1967, Haden joined pianist Keith Jarrett’s ensemble, becoming a key member of the troupe before forming the band Old and New Dreams with Cherry. Haden also founded the Liberation Music Orchestra in 1969 with composer Carla Bley, which blended experimental jazz with political activism.
