Charlie Haden – Closeness

Charlie Haden
Closeness
Style: Jazz
Label: Horizon
Catalog Number: LC 0485
Released: 1976, 70's
Stream:

Charlie Haden’s Closeness is comprised of 4 duet collaboration based melodies crafted by Haden. On each number, Haden (the bassist) pushes the musical envelope playing opposite an artist he respected and was excited by: Keith Jarrett, Ornette Coleman, Alice Coltrane, and Paul Motian. For Haden, “Closeness” is part of the creative process of feeling close to life, the need to express feelings in a creative language (jazz), while being closely connected with others who also use collaborative energy as a way of expression. Often regarded as ahead of its time, the songs here are complex yet seemingly natural, and with each having its own sense of space and feel. This is in large part due to Haden’s consummate ability to maneuver among chord patterns with the rich woody bass sound and originality that he was known for. An essential record for any jazz enthusiast.
