CD review: Rope – In the Moment: The Music of Charlie Haden 2021: Video, CD cover

Veteran Italian trio ROPE releases their newest record ‘In the Moment – The Music of Charlie Ha-den’ for HORA Records, an impassioned celebration of an iconic musician whose musical contributions spanned decades of creative jazz from the fifties to the present day.

A tribute to Charlie Haden’s music must take into account the constantly evolving language of modern jazz: from Ornette Coleman’s desperate lyricism to the militant protest music of the Liberation Music Orchestra, to some ot the most forward-looking piano trios in jazz history, Haden was a pivotal figure in numerous seminal bands which have shaped the music we know as jazz.

ROPE sails these seas with love and respect, the musicians plainly at their ease as they explore each chapter of this timeless American music.

The moving voice of Petra Haden joins the trio in a memorable version of traditional song Shenandoah, a favorite of her father who recorded it in the final years of his incredible career.
