Album Remarks & Appraisals:

Born into a music-centered family, the late, great Charlie Haden began performing country & western music both on tour and on the family's daily radio broadcast at a very young age. At 15 he contracted polio, which both prevented his participation in the family act and permanently ended his singing career. Switching to upright bass, Haden then moved to Los Angeles in 1957 and began playing jazz, eventually pairing up with pianist Paul Bley. It was through Bley that he first met Ornette Coleman; by 1959 he had followed Coleman to New York and joined The Ornette Coleman Quartet. Helium Tears, a 1988 session recorded in Seattle, WA, is a seven-track session that features Ralph Towner on synthesizer rather than his usual acoustic guitar, Jerry Granelli on drums and synthesizer, trombonist Julian Priester, guitarist Robben Ford, Denny Goodhew on alto saxophone and vocalist Jay Clayton on two tracks, in addition to Charlie Haden's bass.
