Charlie Haden

Charlie Haden had the most beautiful bass tone. He appeared on some of the most influential recordings of my musical development. His composition, First Song, influenced my Second Song. In his hands the bass was a powerful lead instrument and he, along with Stanley Clarke, influenced me to write for the bass as a lead. You left the world a better place than you found it. Thank you. You are missed.
