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.
