Charlie Haden (6/8/37 -11/7/14) - Silence R.I.P

Double bass player and Jazz icon who helped change the shape of jazz, has sadly passed away aged 76. In his own words last year he said " I want to take people away  from the ugliness and sadness around us every day and bring beautiful, deep music to as many people as I can." An avant garde icon, I am thankful  for  the magnificent music that he bought to my table, combined with his wonderful creativity, passion  and political conviction.
Charlie Haden Rest in Peace.
