As a tribute to the great Charlie Haden (6.8.37 – 11.7.14), fifty artists have each contributed a solo bass piece, most of which were recorded at Pughouse Studios during the second half of 2014. You will be able to purchase the album (by donation) mid-January 2015 with all profit going to Medicins Sans Forntieres.
“Silent Key” is the term used by Amateur Radio operators when a radio operator passes away. Their morse code keying device literally becomes silent. Amateur Radio was a big part of my extra-musical life as a child and teenager. It was around the time of the release of the album “Silence” (1987) that I first became aware of Charlie Haden’s work, as a teenager. I have adopted the chord progression and mood of the title track of Haden’s album as a musical elegy.
