Documentary on Charlie Haden

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Free to stream on vimeo for the next week. To my mind Charlie Haden elicited perhaps the most beautiful sound ever from a double bass through a combination of his vintage bass, his idiosyncratic technique, his innate sense of melody and his Spiro/Golden Spiral string combination.

Interesting, politically-active life too but now sadly no longer with us.

PS, this is only free to stream until 5th April. Its very enjoyable and wide ranging in its scope (various musical styles, politics, social history, great anecdotes etc)

It's all country and western so far ( sorry, " Americana" ) but I shall persevere.  Doing my German skills some good at least, as keep trying to read the ( grossly inaccurate) sub titles.

Well spotted.

The C&W section is only the set-up for the first 15 or so mins as it relates to his very young years. Once he heads to music school it gets very interesting. Its an incredibly wide ranging documentary. Do persevere!

That was brilliant thanks! 

What a lesson on just how to be. Cool guy. 

So revealing to watch his left hand technique, quite unorthodox but he definitely found a way to play that suited his body and used great economy of  effort. I need to watch it again to take more in! 

That jam he had with Keith Jarret was a treat too. Wonderful. 

Thanks Clarky. 👍
