Vocalist Petra Haden performs with Jesse Harris and band to celebrate the release of their forthcoming album "Seemed Like a Good Idea - Petra Haden Sings Jesse Harris" (Sunnyside Records). Petra Haden’s affinity for music has led her far and wide, from jazz to classical to folk to punk. Daughter of legendary jazz bassist Charlie Haden, her name has become synonymous with eclecticism and technical brilliance. With both her voice and violin, she has collaborated with such talents as the Foo Fighters, Beck, Bill Frisell, Paul Motian and her sisters’ group, The Haden Triplets. Jesse Harris has been a prolific singer and songwriter since the mid-1990s. In addition to releasing over a dozen solo albums, he has collaborated with many fantastic artists, most notably writing songs for Norah Jones, from her groundbreaking debut (for which he won the Grammy for Song of the Year for his composition “Don’t Know Why”), and for Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Melody Gardot and, most recently, with iconoclast composer John Zorn’s The Song Project.
