Charlie Haden

Fine obit from Nate Chinen here.

Everyone is posting their favorite memories and/or performances. I caught Quartet West several times, a superb group. To my ears his greatest playing is on the duet record with Ornette, Soapsuds Soapsuds:

The record seems to be generally unavailable except for resellers. For another great, less well known record, I strongly recommend The Empty Foxhole.
