STEAL AWAY was nominated for a 1996 Grammy Award for Best Jazz Instrumental Performance, Individual Or Group. "Go Down, Moses" was nominated for a Grammy for Best Jazz Instrumental Solo.
From the outset of his career with Ornette Coleman, through his work with pianist Keith Jarrett, his own Liberation Music Orchestra and collaborations with the likes of Paul Motian, Hampton Hawes, Chet Baker, Carlos Paredes and Ginger Baker, bassist Charlie Haden has always accorded the spiritual component of music greater importance than its technical considerations.
Haden's finest work has always focused on the most intimate, humanistic principles: freedom, justice, quality. In pianist Hank Jones, Haden encounters a collaborator and fellow traveller whose musical instincts are every inch as elegant and refined as his own. And in the rich public domain of materials which make up STEAL AWAY, Haden and Jones take on an oral (and moral) tradition of music that has been inspiring listeners since before the time of the underground railroad.
