The Film Fridays segment appears every Friday and features films and videos from students, faculty and alumni of the six schools at CalArts.
In today’s Film Fridays post, we feature a video of faculty member and jazz bassist Charlie Haden and his Quartet West. The quartet plays First Song, with Haden on bass; Gary Foster on tenor; Alan Broadbent on piano and Larence Marable on drums.
Haden founded the CalArts Jazz Program in 1982 and has long been a heavyweight of the genre, working with other jazz greats such as Ornette Coleman, Pat Metheny, John Coltrane and Stan Getz.
Tonight through Sunday (Sept. 2-4), the quartet will celebrate its 25th year by performing at the Catalina Jazz Club in Hollywood.
