London Jazz Festival - Charlie Haden's Liberation Music Orchestra
Soweto Kinch presents a concert given at the 2016 EFG London Jazz Festival, in which Carla Bley directs Charlie Haden's Liberation Music Orchestra at Cadogan Hall.
Soweto Kinch presents the fifth Jazz Now concert from the 2016 EFG London Jazz Festival, with Carla Bley directing Charlie Haden's Liberation Music Orchestra at Cadogan Hall. As apposite in today's world as it was when Haden and Bley launched the Orchestra in 1969, inspired by life-affirming songs from the Spanish Civil War, and fired in protest against the war in Vietnam, this is music that celebrates the human spirit and the dignity of the individual. Crossing the boundaries of jazz into a new world music, a new folk music, Rolling Stone hailed Bley's arrangements as 'miracles of dynamics, rising and falling in volume and velocity'. The band includes soloists such as trombonist Curtis Fowlkes, saxophonists Tony Malaby and Chris Cheek, and trumpeter Michael Rodriguez.
