In honor of his upcoming 65th birthday, jazz bassist Charlie Haden is on this edition of Fresh Air. As a child he sang with his family on their country music radio show. Later he worked with Ornette Coleman when Coleman's music created controversy and sometimes provoked a violent response by listeners. Haden has also worked with Art Pepper, and Paul Bley, and he's recorded with many artists including Abbey Lincoln, Bill Frisell, Joshua Redman, Rick Lee Jones, and more. Haden's own groups include the Liberation Music Orchestra and Quartet West which he formed to play music of the 1940s and early 50s. He has many albums to his credit. His latest is Nocturne with Gonzalo Rubalcaba. (Original Broadcast Dates: 1985, May 29, 1996 and October 7, 1999)
