On July 11 of this year, the music world lost the monumental musician Charlie Haden, a man who completely reinvented the approach to the double bass in jazz music. With an amazing career that spanned five decades, he is known for his groundbreaking reinvention of jazz harmony and structure. From Ornette Coleman’s seminal free-jazz quartet to his intensely melodic and sparse approach to duos with Pat Metheny and Keith Jarrett, to leading his own large ensemble, the fiery, politically radical Liberation Music Orchestra, he brought together his love of folk, classical, free jazz, and world music.

Bassist Birch Pereira, a longtime admirer of Haden, has organized a night of music to pay tribute to the man and his music. Pereira will be joined by distinguished Seattle bassists John Seman, Paul Kemmish, Geoff Harper, Evan Flory-Barnes, Carmen Rothwell, and David Michael Marcus. Each bassist will trade off with songs from Haden’s legacy that feature different sets of musicians including Jason Goessl (guitar), Ben Krulewitch (piano), Seth Alexander (saxophone), Scott Morning (trumpet), and more.
