Overview

Charlie Haden Family and Friends' Rambling Boy is literally the work of a lifetime. Before taking up the bass and playing on some of the 20th Century's most seminal works, Charlie Haden was a child singer, performing with his siblings and parents as part of the Haden Family. Led by his parents, Carl and Virginia, and including his siblings Carl Jr., Mary, and Jim, the Haden Family crisscrossed America, playing the day's standards, as well as originals like "Moberly Mine Disaster" and "Ozark Moon." Despite half a century playing music that was wildly divergent from the Haden Family, Charlie has always maintained a deep love of American roots music. Now, he's returned to his origins, and recruited his wife, Ruth, son Josh, and daughters Rachel, Petra, and Tanya -- all of whom are established musicians in their own right -- as well as his son-in-law, Jack Black, and some notable friends to celebrate this collection of deep American music with him. Featured artists include his longtime collaborator Pat Metheny, and Elvis Costello, Rosanne Cash, Vince Gill, Bruce Hornsby, Ricky Skaggs, and Dan Tyminski.
