RIP Charlie Haden

It seems like I have to write every day a little tribute to musicians who died. First Tommy Ramone died and now I got the news that Charlie Haden one of the most skilful and adventorous bass players in jazz history died on Thursday night at the age of 77. He played the traditional double bass and had a long time collaboration with Ornette Coleman and pianist Keith Jarret. I liked the way he played and whenever he has plucked the strings of his bass I have felt a pleasant feeling of the relaxation. In his later years he worked with Pat Metheny on Beyound The Missouri Sky and Elvis Costello. 

RIP Charlie
