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.

Customer Reviews

Simple elegance!

A beautiful series of meditations on the great spirituals. This is an album to light a candle by and remember the stories of your grandfather's faith. Highly recommended!

A "must have" that is nothing like a "must have"

This is the album you forgot you had, but everytime you find it in your collection you forget about everything else. I never write reviews, but this deserves a thousand, and very rarely will you come across such a gem that truly communicates such musicality, surpassing any thoughts on technique or even the instruments themselves.

Sneak away music

I found Charlie Haden from a piece by CBS Sunday Morning’s Bill Flanagan, who I regard as one of my trusted reviewers. He mentioned "Rambling Boy" by Charlie Haden. Haden has been a towering figure in jazz for fifty years, but this album is a return to his childhood roots as a country singer with his parents' group. It was just a tad to county but this jem; Steal Away has been accompanying me for three days in my office. As the world fiddles its way to the next meltdown I am tucked away in the cool summer breeze of Haden & Jones, what an incredible find.

As a member of saxophonist Ornette Coleman's early bands, bassist Charlie Haden became known as one of free jazz's founding fathers. Haden never settled into any of jazz's many stylistic niches, however. Certainly he 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 seemed drawn to consonance. Witness his trio with saxophonist Jan Garbarek and guitarist...
