  1. Chairman Mao

From the album Dear Charlie

The opening track Chairman Mao is taken from Haden’s extremely fruitful time spent with Ornette Coleman, Don Cherry and Ed Blackwell, and later Dewey Redman. Goodwin’s group adds conspicuous themes into the midst, namely the juxtapositioning of tempos between the soloists, and the understated acoustic guitar of Gary Schwartz.
