To pay proper tribute to bassist Charlie Haden would take some hours, even days. A national holiday would work but two hours is all I have. This program focused on three things; Ornette Coleman, Keith Jarrett, and the duets.
  • Death and the Flower - this brews into a creative storm without leaving a mark.
  • First Song - (for Ruth) is often added, for his wife. Pretty tune, with Pat Metheny. A lot of people love him, Metheny.
  • Circus '68 '69 - from the carousel intro to the chaotic finale, a great translation of political dystopia. Music Liberation Orchestra.
  • Back Home Blues - a Charlie Parker line from Quartet West. Cleanse the palate, ready to continue.
  • Folk Medley - little solo tucked into the middle of Don Cherry's Art Deco. Proof of Haden's value.
  • Blues In Motian - Could have done two hours of Montreal Tapes and been happy.
  • Pocket Full of Cherry - Keith Jarrett plays alto sax, Dewey Redman on tenor. 60th minute at full tilt.
  • For a Free Portugal - with Paul Motian.  see this
  • Out of Focus - with Don Cherry.
  • O.C. - with Ornette Coleman.
  • Blues Connotation, Folk Tale, and Ramblin. This was it. This was where I started. One of the places, anyway.
  • For Turiya - with Alice Coltrane on harp. A heavenly sendoff. Happy/sad right now.
Thanks for listening

Missed the live blog on Thursday night, went camping, came back to World Cup final. Exhausted of every bit of concentration but there are still highlights that shine through.
  • More research into George Russell is warranted. A great period in the early 60's with incredible timeless creativity of arrangement and playing. Ezz-thetic, Stratusphunk, In K.C.
  • Trane, India, extended group, Village Vanguard. Free Time!
  • Rob Mazurek, Skull Sessions. Could solid matter become more dense? When do layers of sound collapse and/or expand by telepathic insinuation? Yes, and on cue, generally speaking.
Thanks for listening.
Charlie Haden 1937-2014
Blog Name: Home Page NewsAuthor: San Diego's Jazz 88.3 Posted on: July 11, 2014
A Jazz Great of the Modern Era has passed away. Bassist Charlie Haden was musical before he could walk and his influence is like a major branch of the Jazz Tree. He always created on the highest level, and he is remembered as a warm and giving individual. There will be much written about him in the coming days. Take a minute and read or hear something by/about/for Charlie Haden and just kind of dig that quietly.

Here is an example of cross-media promotion, I assume, or in other words pushing the same material through a new outlet. On facebook last night I posted "On My Mind: Index of Possibilities, Transitions, and several Blind Shots." The Index of Possibilities is automatic within the concept of Creative Music. Transitions are useful/mandatory juxtapositions of texture between moving Index Items. Blind Shots are simply a blind shot or more.
  • Rudy Royston- Gangs of New York- 303
  • Horace Tapscott, so much
  • Solo 1 gets a shot in the final minute...stoppage time goal!
