Charlie Haden on Bass.

Only Charlie Haden could do this.

The best communist bass player from Iowa in the world.

Seriously, a giant. My favorite part of his career, if one has to choose a favorite, was his years with Keith Jarrett, Dewey Redman, and Paul Motion.

Something a little outside mainstream jazz, as only Charlie Haden could do it:

1. Fantastic...

I loved that song from the first time I heard Jefferson Airplane do it. Still love Marty Balin's voice.

2. I always included among the best Jefferson Airplane songs ever. I was briefly a fan in my youth.

This version however, is much better than Jefferson Airplane's version, good as it was, I think, and Charlie Haden's bass, and Rikki Lee Jones's voice and the hurdy-gurdy (Michael Greiner) make it so.

The person who put the pictures on this You Tube version did a nice job too.
