Charlie Haden Chats with Ethan Iverson
Ethan Iverson’s 2008 interview with Charlie Haden, in its longer form in Iverson’s blog Do the Math, is a constantly fascinating encounter between two of the most probing and committed figures in jazz. Haden seems to leap at Iverson’s questions to talk about his history in the music, from Ornette Coleman The Shape of Jazz to Come to the Liberation Music Orchestra, Old and New Dreams and Quartet West. Especially illuminating: Haden’s take on the bass greats.
This is amazing interview with one of my bass playing heroes, Charlie Haden. So why are you still reading this?
