    NOCTURNE won the 2002 Grammy Award for Best Latin Jazz Album.
    Charlie Haden has a longstanding interest in Cuban and Central American music (most notably expressed on his LIBERATION MUSIC ORCHESTRA albums). Here, in the company of Cuban pianist Gonzalo Rubalcaba, he explores the lush, romantic aspects of the Cuban sound. A bracing and delicious sort of melancholy runs through these quiet pieces, calling the listener in ever closer. Half the set features Cuban ballads, the rest being a mix of originals (two by Haden, one by Rubalcaba) and four pieces of Mexican origin.
    The perfectly matched Haden and Rubalcaba are joined on NOCTURNE by drummer Ignacio Berroa. Guest appearances by tenor saxophonists Joe Lovano and David Sanchez, guitarist Pat Metheny, and violinist Federico Britas Ruiz add additional shadings that underscore the strong melodic sensibilities of this music. NOCTURNE combines the gentle, late-night moods of Haden's Quartet West with the Spanish derivations that have informed the bassist's vision over the course of his exhilarating career.

  • Critic Reviews
    Entertainment Weekly (5/11/01, p.81) - "...A lovely, low-key program of Latin-tinged ballads and mood unexpected charmer..." - Rating: B+
    Q (7/01, p.111) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...This kind of sustained subtlety is rare in contemporary rich enough to satisfy without the fiery seasoning."
    Uncut (11/01, p.109) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...Few albums emerge as near-perfect as NOCTURNE..."
    Down Beat (10/01, pp.70-1) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...Lovingly realized music..."
    JazzTimes (9/01, pp.96-7) - "...A great intro to the bolero...and an excellent addition to the library of fans who already love it..."
