ROIO of the Week [Recordings of Indeterminate Origin]

It wasn’t obvious at the beginning that jazz was cultivated to be protest music. The earliest hints were sung by blacks already given a platform in white society. The most famous is Billie Holiday’s Strange Fruit about illegal lynchings of blacks by white mobs in rural America. The next time jazz exploded with social commentary was during the '50s and '60s when musicians took ethnic styles and merged them back with black rhythms. Max Roach’s We Insist! Freedom Now Suite from 1960 was exemplery of an insistent style. The tradition continues with Wayne Shorter’s soft ballad for Aung Sun Suu Kyi, the Burmese resistance leader and Charlie Haden’s long-lived Liberation Music Orchestra. Here’s a lively outing as the band performs its latest album, Not In Our Name, live at the Berlin Jazz Festival. - The Little Chicken

Charlie Haden
And The Liberation Music Orchestra

Jazz Fest Berlin 2005 [no label 1CD]
Haus der Berliner Festspiele, November 3, 2005

Haden forgoes the exquisite settings of his Quartet West jazz to once more immerse himself in protest music. This time the theme is to reflect on America and what it should stand for - justice, democracy and equality. Hence the title of his latest album, Not In Our Name.

The players at this concert are not familiar on his quartet outings. But with Carla Bley conducting and playing piano, this big band is able to carry Haden’s passion, ideas and protest with zeal and accuracy.
