Sometimes you find yodels where you don’t expect it, sometimes it seems so strange and unbelievable… I speak here of a very young yodeler – not really a surprise, just go to youtube and you’ll find some, but in this case, it’s the name of the yodeler that came as a big surprise. And you’ll have to listen until the end of the cd to find it.
yes, the jazz musician !
And then, you read his family history and it’s not so surprising anymore: his parents were performers of country and gospel songs, a bit like the Carter Family, who by the way were good friends. They toured in the southern states of the USA and had a radio show: the Haden Family Radio Show. Charlie began to sing with his family in 1939, when he was two years old. In this song, he even yodels ! It’s full of false notes but so touching !
