CD1 - HAUNTED HEART - CHARLIE HADEN QUARTET WEST (Verve/Decca/Universal)
Recorded in France (1990) and mixed in California. Original CD issued on Gitanes the album also features the voices of JO STAFFORD singing 'Haunted Heart' (recorded in December 1947), JERI SOUTHERN singing 'Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye' and playing piano (recorded in March 1954) and BILLIE HOLIDAY singing 'Deep Song' (recorded in February 1947).
I'm just listening to this fine album for the first time and much to my surprise I am really liking what I hear! Top ranking music!
CD2 - STEAL AWAY SPIRITUALS, HYMNS AND FOLK SONGS - CHARLIE HADEN | HANK JONES (Verve/Decca/Universal)
with Charlie Haden (bass) / Hank Jones (piano). Recorded in Montreal, Canada in 1994.
First hearing of the second disc from the Charlie Haden 5 ORIIGINAL ALBUMS box and it's another enjoyable listen as the duo play a selection of spirituals, hymns and folk songs in an easy, laid back manner.
CD3 - NIGHT AND THE CITY - CHARLIE HADEN | KENNY BARRON (Verve)
with Charlie Haden (bass) & Kenny Barron (piano). Recorded live in New York 1996
Great album with Charlie and Kenny Barron in particular in top form. A 5 star disc.
CD4 - The Art Of The Song - Charlie Haden Quartet West (Verve)
with Ernie Watts (tenor sax), Alan Broadbent (piano), Charlie Haden (bass), Larance Marable (drums), Shirley Horn, Bill Henderson & Charlie Haden (vocal) & a Strings/Chamber Orchestra. The music was recorded 1999.
The sound quality, like all discs in this set is great. I like the four Orchestrated tracks as well as the one with Charlie Haden on vocal. I don't mind the four tracks that feature Shirley Horn on vocal but (on one listen) don't think I will be in any hurry to hear again any of the four tracks that feature Bill Henderson's vocal.
CD5 - NOCTURNE - CHARLIE HADEN (Verve) CD
with Joe Lovano, David Sanchez (tenor sax), Gonzalo Rubalcaba (piano), Pat Metheny (guitar), Federico Britos Ruiz (violin), Charle Haden (double bass), Ignacio Berroa (drums) - Recorded 2000.
Another pleasant, easy on the ear album from Charlie Haden.
All discs are mastered from original record company tapes - so no fear of getting cloned, pirated or burned CDrs in this package. All discs are individually presented in single carboard sleeves and have replica original LP/CD front images. The back of all sleeves do not copy the original design. Instead we get an easy to read track list, and along the bottom the artists involved and the recording/studio information is given.
