Jazz has always been a family affair. Fathers have passed the torch to sons or brothers have risen to prominence on their respective instruments (sometimes in the same band). We've compiled a list of the families that have had an impact on Jazz, from Benny & Harry Goodman to the new first family , Jimmy, Percy, Tootie and Mtume Heath.
