Charlie Haden

The incomparable jazz musician Charlie Haden died last week.

With numerous impeccable YouTube clips available, my first choice is a performance by the wonderful Liberation Music Orchestra playing Sandino from a TV show called Night Music, mostly for the music, partly the presenter’s hair style.

And because I still crave one of those Steinberger headless guitars.
