Charlie Haden’s played on. Are we?

Charlie Haden; Haden, Charlie

Charlie Haden played on. Marxist 

Charlie Haden; Haden, Charlie
party cadence pacing, harpy

Charlie Haden; Haden, Charlie
bars of bass in space, the spartan

gnarly laze when bass's mastery,

calmly staking trades with startling

Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll was written by Ian Dury and Chas Jankel… Dury presenting Jankel with his hand-typed lyric sheets… Dury sung the song's guitar riff to Chas and sang the song's title in time with Chas's riff… Sometime later Jankel heard the Ornette Coleman tune "Ramblin" (from his album 1959 Change of the Century), which included also Charlie Haden and Don Cherry) and heard exactly the same bass riff being played by Haden. Ian Dury once apologised to Coleman for lifting the riff but, as Coleman explained, he (or possibly Haden) had lifted it himself from aKentucky folk tune called "Old Joe Clark". An alternative version to this story exists: as Dury explained when he guested onBBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs, he had apologised to Haden at Ronnie Scott's Club for the riff lift, who responded by saying there was no need for an apology as he had lifted it from an old Cajun tune.
