SPAIN Announce 6-Week East Coast / European Tour (Jan 28 – Mar 11)

January 7, 2015 by 1888media


Los Angeles, CA: Iconic band Spain, featuring singer/bassist Josh Haden, have announced a 6-week tour from January 28 – March 11. Kicking off in Boston, MA, the band then plays Lincoln Center in NYC, before club shows in Philly, D.C. and Brooklyn. The brief Northeast swing will see the band perform as a trio (bass, guitar, drums) and will mark the band’s first East coast shows in 15 years.

The multi-continent tour, which includes thirty shows in Europe, will support Spain’s latest release, 2014’s Sargent Place, which achieved glowing 4-star reviews from Rolling StoneAll Music, and Blurt Magazine while also notching accolades from LA TimesLA WeeklyBrooklyn Vegan, Q, Uncut and NPR tastemaker station WXPN. From the opener, “Love At First Sight,” detailing the initial spark of a romance to the the stately and elegiac “The Fighter,” which features sister Petra on violin, to the contemplative closer, “Waking Song,” the album falls solidly in line with the highly regarded 20-year discography of the band.

A clear inspiration on Sargent Place is the music and life of Haden’s father, jazz legend Charlie Haden. “To Be A Man” and “You And I” were songs written with the elder Haden in mind, with “You And I” featuring the final studio recording from the lauded and beloved musician, who passed away in July. 

Renowned NPR show Jazz Night In America, featuring host Christian McBride, recently invited Josh, along with his triplet sisters Petra, Rachel, and Tanya, to take part in a loving tribute to celebrate Charlie’s extraordinary career as one of the most innovative and influential bassists in jazz history. An archived podcast of the December 18, 2014 show can be streamed at the NPR web site

In further celebration of Mr. Haden’s distinguished 50-year career that saw him anchor the Ornette Coleman Quartet, and accompany the likes of Keith Jarrett, John Coltrane, Alice Coltrane, Michael Brecker, Stan Getz, Chet Baker, and Abbey Lincoln, among countless others, the Haden siblings will join esteemed musical guests Geri Allen, Kenny Barron, Carla Bley, Jack DeJohnette, Ravi Coltrane, Bill Frisell, Ruth Cameron-Haden, Lee Konitz, Pat Metheny, Josh Redman, and Gonzalo Rubalcaba at Town Hall in NYC on Tuesday January 13 at 6:00 PM. The Memorial celebration is a free all ages event with tax deductible donations being accepted to benefit the Charlie Haden CalArts Scholarship Fund to assist jazz students in need.
