Album Review

This is an unusual record. Bassist Charlie Haden and pianist Hank Jones perform a variety of spirituals, hymns and folk songs as duets. The traditional music (which includes such tunes as "Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen," "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot," "Sometimes I Feel like a Motherless Child" and "We Shall Overcome") are all performed respectfully and with reverence. These melodic yet subtly swinging interpretations hold one's interest throughout and reward repeated listenings.

The ultimate chill out

Beautiful, slow, wind down after a busy day music. Just take a listen to any track (try "Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen"). As stress relief, this album is up there with the best that medicine has to offer.

simply wonderful

this album is absolutely beautiful and quietly uplifting. i would heartily recommend to all. all the soul of gospel is here, along with haunting blues, and some lovely jazz riffs. it's an album that you will enjoy coming back to time and again...

Not many albums impress me enough to rate...

So simple yet absolutely stunning

Certainly he's played his share of dissonant music — in the '60 and '70s, as a sideman with Coleman and Keith Jarrett, and as a leader of the Liberation Music Orchestra, for instance — but for the most part, he seems drawn to consonance. Witness his trio with saxophonist Jan Garbarek...
