Born and raised on a farm in Shenandoah, Iowa started out singing on his families radio program but suffered partial paralysis to his throat muscles as the result of polio when he was fourteen.

In 1959 Charlie Haden move to New York with Ornette Coleman's Quartet shortly after he joined the group.

After starting a family Haden resumed his career in 1964 working with Archie Shepp and John Handy's trio.

He was a member of Keith Jarrett's Trio and 'American Quartet' with Paul Motian and Dewey Redman from 1967 to 1976, and began leading his own "Liberation Music Orchestra" during the 1970s.

After spending his final years suffering from effects of post-polio syndrome, Charlie Haden died in Los Angeles on July 11, 2014.
