He wrote his own Epitaph...

Not everyone will notice the passing of Charlie Haden but then again, not everyone noticed him when he was alive. That is the role of the bass player, and the better you are sometimes the less you are noticed.

Haden did many amazing things, and played on many great records. There are too many to list but everyone’s musical life is poorer without at least trying the Liberation Music Orchestra.

The Stylings Of Silver

I don’t know what to say. Horace Silver is dead.

It wasn’t that I’d seen him play in a while or noticed it, even if he was good when you saw him.

And it isn’t like I can’t listen to his records any more. You certainly should if you have not had the good fortune to do so already.

The Preacher (arguably the first “soul jazz” record) is still there and will be forever featuring maybe the swingingest horns ever put to vinyl.
 

Jimmy Scott - The Best, But Least Well Known Singer In America...

There was a time when you couldn’t get the record below with its super cool Mad Men sleeve. Some sort of complexity between the record labels for Jimmy Scott (the singer) and Ray Charles (who “musically supervised” the record for his label Tangerine).

Fortunately the dispute was resolved so nowadays we can readily hear one of the greatest of all jazz vocal albums.

One of THE albums we’ve been anticipating the most in 2014 is set to drop later next month - BADBADNOTGOOD’s III

We’ve shown our love for them around these parts before and I don’t think a week day goes past where they don’t get a run in the communal office playlist.
