Let's start with the obvious: Bass duets are not everyone's cup of tea. That said, Haden is a very lyrical player and this recording has more appeal than many would expect. The programmers were right to start the disk with the duet with Keith Jarrett: the piano-bass combination is the least unusual, Jarrett has a lot of commercial appeal, and the duet itself is based on the kind of contemplative theme well-suited to Jarrett's style. The next duet is a bluesy romp with Ornette Coleman. Back to the quieter more lyrical mode in the third duet with Alice Coltrane on "For Turiya." Some may be familiar with this piece which also is performed on the Haden-Garbarek-Gismonti "Folksongs" album. The final duet with drummer Paul Motian uses revolutionary song recordings and harkens back to the avowedly political music of the Liberation Music Orchestra. All and all a very appealing disk.

If you like this set, you might be interested to note that this was originally a double disc set on Horizon records (catalog #'s 11 & 26) from 1976. The CD re-issue of the other disc is titled THE GOLDEN NUMBER and features duets with Don Cherry, Hampton Hawes, Archie Shepp and Ornette Coleman (again). It should have been similarly titled 'THE GOLDEN NUMBER' Duets, for clarity's sake.

This is a great work of art from an amazingly gifted artist; gifted with great talent and bearing gifts for humanity, a beauty and originality that shines through, if anything, all the clearer today. I can remember being transported into realms of heartbreaking ecstasy by Charlie Haden's playing listening to this back in the early eighties, in a way that was very rare. The depths of emotion are still there, I just note that in our present digital time it may have become more difficult to relax and feel. Perhaps it is music such as this, that can be a way back for us.

It is also worth noting that, I have found that, what was for me the most challenging duet at the time, that with Ornette Coleman, has now with the passage of time become more clear. I can only now begin to hear the interesting musical ideas that he had going on on this recording. I attribute this curious shift of perception to his playing having been so far ahead of its time, that it tended to "push listeners away", while now we are able to hear the music for what it truly always was.

I would consider this album essential: We are at a very fortunate crossroads in time right now where a number of such great and unjustly forgotten works of art are only now being made available again, in many cases after more than thirty years of being out of print. A good opportunity to save these works for future generations, and hopefully help them reach more people.

If you like Charlie Haden, be sure to check out Old and New Dreams, especially Song for the Whales, and The Ballad of the Fallen. On the Ballad of the Fallen, among the very great players are Don Cherry and Jim Pepper. Some of their works are again currently available on Amazon, check out Sangam with Don Cherry and Latif Khan, El Corazon with Ed Blackwell, Brown Rice, and the Codona Trilogy. Also check out Peppers Pow Wow, and Jim Pepper's Comin' and Goin'.
