Tales from the far Side 06.08.20 A Tribute to Charlie Haden Part 1 The Progressive Years

On this edition I pay tribute to the legendary bassist/composer Charlie Haden on what would have been the 83rd Anniversary of his Birthday. And in part 1 I concentrate on his work within the Ornette Coleman Quartet, in the group Old and New Dreams co=led with trumpeter Don Cherry as well his Liberation Music Orchestra.

TALES FROM THE FAR SIDE is live on air on CRC102.9fm and on www.crcfm.ie every Thursday 8-9 pm with a repeat on Saturday 9-10 pm. And there is a podcast of the show available on the web site all through the week. The show has established itself over the years with a small but devoted listenership (even beyond Jazz-fans) and since the introduction on internet the listenership extended nationally and internationally.
