Veteran bassist Charlie Haden is known for playing jazz. But as? a child he performed country music with his family’s band, and he ? revisits those days on this fine ?album of mostly old, mostly old-timey tunes. Elvis Costello and Rosanne Cash are among the ”friends” who stop by to help out on Charlie Haden Family & Friends: Rambling Boy. Family members include Haden’s triplet daughters, who harmonize sublimely on ”Single Girl, Married Girl,” and son-in-law Jack Black — yes, that Jack Black — who supplies rollicking vocals for the fiddle-?led stomper ”Old Joe Clark.” ?
