About

Charlie Haden is amongst the massed cast of Carla Bley’s star-packed “chronotransduction” Escalator Over the Hill, usually described as a jazz opera, with Jack Bruce and Linda Ronstadt in leading roles, negotiating the cryptic lyrics of Paul Haines, and outstanding musical episodes with Don Cherry, John McLaughlin, Gato Barbieri, Roswell Rudd, Mike Mantler and many, many others.
