Editorial Reviews

2007 compilation pulled from Haden and his quartet's 20+ year career. Quartet West has been together since 1985, performing in LA and then recording their first album Charlie Haden Quartet West in 1986. In addition to the legendary bassist Haden, the group consisted of Ernie Watts on tenor saxophone, Alan Broadbent on piano and the great Billy Higgins on drums, Charlie's rhythm section mate in the original Ornette Coleman Quartet. Larence Marable replaced Higgins on drums on the subsequent recordings In Angel City (1988), Haunted Heart (1991), Always Say Goodbye (1993), Now is the Hour (1995) and The Art of the Song (1999). Always adept at making great records, Haden came to use samples from classic recordings from the likes of Jo Stafford and Stephane Grapelli and Django Reinhart to create aural landscapes that captured the flavor of LA from a bygone era.

You know how some albums give you just what you wanted to hear just when you wanted to hear it? I've been a fan of Charlie Haden's work with Ornette Coleman and the Liberation Music Orchestra for years, not to mention his lovely "Steal Away" cd. But I hadn't really checked out his Quartet West, probably because most of the reviews I'd read concentrated on the 40's/50's nostalgia qualities. Well, there certainly is that--and it's a kind of music that's much more to my taste than it used to be--but really this is just a lovely jazz album, with sophisticated and engaging tunes, expressive and inventive solo work,a traditional approach that still acknowledges what jazz has come to sound like. Yes, this is a good cd to have on when you pick up a Raymond Chandler novel and pour a glass of scotch, but just listen to it.... Just what I wanted to hear.

A good example of what this great group could produce. But, why do band leaders have to sing? A real downer of an ending for a good album.
