Charlie Haden (2009)

Tells the incredible story of the legendary Charlie Haden. As one of the most highly regarded jazz bassists of all time, Haden worked to push the boundaries and conventions of the jazz genre. With an upbringing deeply rooted in music performance, Haden was influenced by his father who had a country and folk music radio show. The power of this musical influence was illustrated by Haden's vocal debut on the show at the age of two. Determined to make a career in music, Haden moved to Los Angeles in the late 1950s where he began to play professionally with jazz innovator Ornette Coleman. Coleman influenced Haden in developing a unique and novel approach to music. Haden ultimately worked with many prolific jazz musicians, including Keith Jarrett, Paul Motian, and Dewey Redman. Haden used music as a method of communication, and he mixed music with politics in an album focusing on the Spanish Civil War.
