Legendary John Heard Returns to Charlie O's


Sign in to view read count
John Heard has worked almost constantly in the jazz world, for over four decades appearing on over 150 albums.

Heard's bass line has been the back bone working with Benny Carter, Rashan Roland Kirk, Hampton Hawes, Tete Montoliu, Oscar Peterson, Wes Montgomery, Cal Tjader, Willie Bobo, the Gerald Wilson Big Band, Freddie Hubbard, Count Basie, Sonny Rollins, Sonny Stitt, Milt Jackson, Ella Fitzgerald, Ahmad Jamal, Kenny Burrell, the Toshiko Akiyoshi-Lew Tabakin Big Band, the Louis Bellson Big Band, Joe Pass, Herb Ellis, Art Pepper, George Cables, Harold Land, Frank Morgan, Dexter Gordon, Pharaoh Sanders and others.

John is an accomplished jazz bassist and visual artist whose works display a mastery of form and improvisation.

He's a great character, very outspoken (which I admire), has an incredible sense of humor and he's done some outrageous interviews with the LA Weekly. He's been around forever, played with Basie, Ella, Cal Tjader and tons of other greats. He's one of my dearest friends and he started the jazz at Charlie O's along with Earl Palmer.
