    In celebration of Father's Day, NPR's All Things Considered took at a look at the special nature of father-son collaborations in jazz and the unique music that can result from it. NPR's Audie Cornish spoke with bassist-composer Christian McBride, who is also a host of NPR's Jazz Night in America, about this, and their conversation began with a discussion of saxophonists Joshua Redman and his father Dewey Redman. The show opens with the father-son Redman duo performing John Coltrane's "India," from Joshua Redman's album Back East, released on Nonesuch Records in 2007. It was one of his father's last recordings before he died. "I loved hearing those two play together," says McBride. "It was something very, very special."
