Charlie Haden: A Bassist With A Country Pedigree.

Bassist Charlie Haden is known as a great jazz musician, but his background is all country. Growing up, he performed alongside his siblings in the Haden Family Band on radio stations across the South and Midwest. He details what it was like to grow up musically -- and why he recently returned to his country roots -- in a 2008 interview on Fresh Air.

This interview was originally broadcast on Sept. 24, 2008.
