    Petra Haden - Astonishing Vocals or What?

    From what I can see, other than some random commentary and references, there does not appear to be any focused discussion on Petra Haden here at PE. I know there are a number of you who are fans and can jump start those with interest in creative vocalese and the types of collaborations she has traversed to date. My introduction to her is the amazing Petra Haden Sings The Who Sell Out. I am curious where she will go next.

    Please chime in!

    Done by one person, acapella, with who tf knows how many overdubs. A major f*****g achievement imho.

    For the "If it ain't prog I'm not interested" segment of the PE universe, here's Petra's acapella take on Mr. Fripp's "Red".

    No, here's Petra's a cappella take on Mr. Fripp's "Red."



    She has also posted versions of "Frame by Frame," "Matte Kudasai," and "The Sheltering Sky."

    You very well may have heard of her father, Charlie Haden, jazz composer/bassist, Bill.

    Wow of course, I have some Charlie in my collection. Didn't know he had a daughter but she's very good!

    Here’s a song from Charlie Haden Family and Friends that is arranged by Pat Metheny.

    Thanks for the above. It has some of the stylistic and performance flavor of Bill Frisell’s Harmony with Petra Haden, Hank Roberts & Luke Bergman that I saw at Big Ears 2019. In both cases, Petra gets sympathetic and poignant treatment from guitarists.

    Lovely.
