4.0 out of 5 stars Charlie, didn't know you could do this! 8 May 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Because he was of the ever-intimidating Jazz World I kept Charlie Haden at arm's length thinking his music would be for the pork pie hat crowd and not little ole me. I was wrong. If you dig a cross between folk, bluegrass and jazz this is the one for you. I am beyond impressed, it reminds me of Roots by the great Everly Brothers and if you know that album BUY THIS ONE.

With Ricky Skaggs, Jack Black, Vince Gill, Elvis Costello, Dan Tyminski, and the Haden offspring all contributing this is a beautiful recording. Lots of ace bluegrass and folk covers and yep, it is hard to pick a favourite. Like many albums today it is a bit long and the argument could be made it would be a stronger album with fewer tracks but the days of the 28 minute long Pet Sounds or 29 minute long Sgt. Pepper are gone, Daddy, gone and so be it.

More, Charlie, more! Leave the pork pie hat stuff alone for another one of these, okay? The jazz world doesn't need you like the Americana world does. There is nothing else like this in alt-country. Period.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth it just for The Fields of Athenry 12 Oct 2008
By Peter Reeve VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Quite a curiosity, this latest album from Jazz bassist Charlie Haden. With his family and friends about him, he draws together various strands of Americana. Jack Black gives a fine belting performance (really, two vocal interludes in an instrumental) of Old Joe Clark. Roseanne Cash gives a creditable performance of Wildwood Flower but, having heard Karen Mal's perfect rendition of this beautiful Folk song, I'm afraid I'm spoiled for any other version. Petra Haden's rendition of The Fields of Athenry is my favorite track. A Folk song with lengthy Jazz sections, which suit it very well, it merits classic status.

Ricky Scaggs, Elvis Costello and others are also featured.

The penultimate track is a brief extract from a recording of the Old Haden Family Show, to remind us where Charlie began. This is followed by a profoundly moving rendition of Oh Shenandoah by the Charlie of today. His vocal chords damaged by polio, he is yet able to carry a tune, and infuse it with deep emotion. He was born in Shenandoah, Iowa, and has had a long and fruitful musical journey. He knew it was time to revisit his musical roots, and the result is a fine album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and truely moving 11 Nov 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In all honesty these have to be some of the most moving pieces I have ever listened to.As described in the title Charlie is among family and friends and the entire album resonates with that atmosphere.You can easily tell that everyone feels very much "at home" and there is an obvious lack of competing for first place. Bruce Hornsby on piano and Pat Metheny's measured acoustic guitar playing are absorbing. The Sally Gardens track almost reduced me to tears.Simply beautiful. I'm still recovering. Thanks Charlie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to Americana! 22 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD
Wonderful stuff from one of America's musical giants. Mr Haden glances back to the roots of American folk music, and I men folk in its real sense. Without this tradition Charlie Haden would not be the amazing musician he is. Listen to any of his solos with Ornette and you can hear that deep roots feel permeate all through his work. Ian Dury even borrowed the great riff from the Ornette Coleman song Ramblin', for Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll! Give your ears a treat and give this a listen. Unless you're deaf you will derive a great deal of pleasure from this lovely look at the real America!

Peace to all

1.0 out of 5 stars Check out the track previews before buying 11 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
Charlie Haden has indeed returned to his childhood roots. Unfortunately, for me, try as I might - I did not enjoy this album one bit.

If you were brought up on Haden with Ornette Coleman, the Liberation Orchestras and Charlie's duets albums, you must check out the track excerpts on Amazon to see if this collection is for you.

I am not quibbling over the quality of the tracks or musicianship - for me though it is just a step back too far. For me it was like putting salt instead of sugar in my tea; possibly I am alone in my response! Main thing is dear listeners, listen, explore and decide before buying in case it is not for you.
