The Haden Triplets, daughters of late jazz bass legend Charlie Haden, recently released their self-titled debut on Jack White’s Third Man Records. The Americana collection’s rootsy harmonies endow old chestnuts from brothers Stanley and Louvin, Bill Monroe, and the Carter Family with a heartfelt intimacy and resonant timbre born of the same womb. Despite their father’s longtime association with Carla Bley, Ornette Coleman, and Kenny Barron, the apples don’t fall far from the tree; after a bout with polio at 15 prematurely ended his singing career with the Haden Family Band, the Iowa-born jazz master began honing his folk-infused style on bass fiddle. The dirge-like “Will You Miss Me” is a timeless farewell.
