It takes a vast concert to encapsulate the vast legacy of bassist Charlie Haden, who died in 2014 at age 76. “A note to our regular attendees: There is an intermission tonight,” Kevin Struthers, the Kennedy Center’s director of jazz programming, announced from the Terrace Theater’s stage on Friday night. Indeed, Kennedy Center jazz doesn’t do a lot of intermissions — but it doesn’t do a lot of two-band, two-set 2½ -hour concerts either. This one, co-hosted by Haden’s widow, Ruth Cameron, was glorious.
