All In The Family


Recommended Posts

I thought it would be interesting to consider the number of well known jazz musicians that have close blood relatives who are also jazz musicians. Below is a list of those who came to mind where fathers, sons, brothers, sisters or daughters were/are jazz musicians.

I did not include wives and husbands or more distant relatives.

The more I thought about it, the more names I came up with, though I surely have left off many others.

Ammons, Albert & Gene

Barron, Kenny and Bill

Bryant, Ray & Tommy
