What all of these shows grasp at, in one way or another, is that nobody knows how to be a grown-up anymore. Adulthood as we have known it has become conceptually untenable. It isn’t only that patriarchy in the strict, old-school Don Draper sense has fallen apart. It’s that it may never really have existed in the first place, at least in the way its avatars imagined. Which raises the question: Should we mourn the departed or dance on its grave?
I’m reasonable sure I’ve posted this before, but damn, it is such a masterful track. I love the new album One is the Other, but this song captures the essence of the Billy Hart Quartet for me.

'Throughout' by Charlie Haden's Liberation Music Orchestra
One of jazz’s most gifted and influential bassists, Charlie Haden, has died aged 76. R.I.P.
He can be seen in the above video perfoming Bill Frisell’s searingly beautiful piece, ‘Throughout’, with his Liberation Music Orchestra (ft. Carla Bley).
