Product Description

Amazon.com

Parents with more than a passing interest in classical music and those who make a point of keeping up with sleep studies are apt to be drawn to Guitar Lullaby, which presents 17 tranquil, snooze-inducing songs in two pleasing programs. A lot of research went into this album: the soothing speech patterns parents instinctively switch on when calming children were put under the microscope, as were the soporific effects of traditional "Hush-a-Bye, Baby"-type lullabies and the musical structures restless young ears respond to best. In the liner notes, producer Keith Pearcy explains that children's music mustn't be complicated. To that end, Guitar Lullaby's bag of technical tricks includes short phrases and quicker-than-average resolution to musical structures. The first nine tracks are intended for older children (say, ages 5 and up), while the last eight are for the very young. Each of the two programs starts with an energetic though hardly rollicking number then winds down gradually to slow, gentle strumming. Throughout, Ricardo Cobo, formerly of the Bogotá Philharmonic, displays his gift for getting a guitar to give off emotions--in this case, pure, uncluttered, peaceful ones. And that makes it sort of a shame to tuck this recording into the narrow lullaby category. Although its sleep-promoting potential will serve an important purpose for many, its calming qualities are best enjoyed when the whole family's wide-awake. --Tammy La Gorce

Our baby falls asleep to this CD, nurses to this CD, plays on her playmat with this CD.

I find it nice to have as background music while I read or do some other calm activity, so it's certainly not just for kids.
Jennifer
Whether you have kids or not, this is wonderful CD and I highly recommend it to everyone!

What a dreadful shame to stuff this in the kiddies' CD racks. I presume no one other than the parents of fractious offspring will be lucky enough to come across it.
This is simply an excellent classical guitar CD. The atmospheric recording is superb, with a beautiful guitar tone. The pieces are all lovely and, yes, relaxing (in common with most classical guitar music). In fact, ironically my only reservation is that I would have liked to have heard slightly more variety in tempo :)This deserves better than being marketed as fodder for rendering your sprogs unconscious.

As a musician myself, I appreciated the expertise of Ricardo Cobo and the pieces he chose. As a lullaby program, I found this recording very clever and quite unique. The first few tracks got my kids attention. The selections were energetic and fun (not what I would usually play for them right before bedtime). The next few tracks seemed to guide them from their usual hyper "I'll prove to you I'm not tired" pre-bedtime behavior to a calm and inquisitive state - asking about the "musical stories" they were hearing. A very gentle and gradual winding down. The last few tracks we found to be very comforting - like coming out of a warm bath. The best part is that it's 8:30pm and they're BOTH asleep!

Unfortunately categorized as music for children, this collection is my tonic for adult musical boredom. Beautiful music, beautifully played. I first heard this disc in an interview with Cobo on the radio, and had one of those "driveway moments" where you have to stay in your car to hear the entire interview, and then hurriedly write down the disc info. What a great way to wash away the cares of the day! And, if you do have kids, what a perfect way to introduce them to great music!

My baby is a good sleeper, but has trouble settling down to nurse. This is a beatiful collection of classical guitar pieces that is soothing for both of us. Never gets old - I will be enjoying this CD long after baby outgrows it.

My 2 year old and I have been listening to this album almost every night since she was born. It manages to be simultaneously beautiful, relaxing and interesting. It's great for falling asleep to but I would also recommend it for any other time you want to hear some amazing guitar.

My babies are grown so these lullabies are for my ears. I never tire of listening to Ricardo Cobo's guitar- just lovely! Thank you.

We play this for my daughter during her bedtime routine. She seems to love it and so do we. We especially like how they have two "programs" of songs that start out more active and get more calm and soothing. It really does seem to help her wind down.

We love this CD. Our baby falls asleep to this CD, nurses to this CD, plays on her playmat with this CD. It is a very nice flowing CD and my husband and I both love to hear the guitar as well. So nice for adults too.
