Renowned jazz bassist Charlie Haden will perform Oct. 2 in Wentz Concert Hall. Says Chicago Tribune’s jazz critic Howard Reich about Haden, “It’s difficult to overstate bassist Haden’s stature in jazz, starting with his groundbreaking collaborations with Ornette Coleman in 1959. Haden’s subsequent work leading the Liberation Music Orchestra and partnerships with pianists as far-flung as Keith Jarrett and Gonzalo Rubalcaba barely hint at the breadth of his work.
