Musical Dynasties: Musician dads and their tuneful offspring

Father: Charlie Haden, jazz bassist extraordinaire
Kids: Josh Haden and triplets Petra, Tanya and Rachel Haden, musicians one and all

Like father, like kids: All four kids have been in numerous rock bands, but Petra probably stands out most for her work in the acclaimed band That Dog with Anna Waronker, followed up by a stint in the Decemberists. She also found time to work with Greg Dulli's Twilight Singers, the Foo Fighters and more, and single-handedly creates the a cappella pop choral covers in those delightful Toyota Prius commercials. The clan finally united musically on their father's 2008 album, "Rambling Boy," which explored his own musical family roots in country and gospel. He also recorded Josh's meditative "Spiritual" as a duet with jazz guitar hero Pat Metheny.
