About the album

Charlie Haden’s Ballad of the Fallen, recorded in 1982, continued the work of the Liberation Music Orchestra, begun in the 1960s. With Carla Bley as pianist-arranger and a line-up including Don Cherry, Dewey Redman, Michael Mantler, Mick Goodrick and Paul Motian, the orchestra reconvened to protest human rights violations and Reagan-era US meddling in political struggles in South and Central America. Songs from the Spanish Civil War beautifully arranged by Bley, and originals by Carla and Charlie distinguish a powerful recording that was voted Jazz Album of the Year in the DownBeat Critics Poll in 1984.
