This is a marvelous collection of jazz songs with quirky lyrics that should tickle any child and their parent's funny bone. As soon as you hear Ella Fitzgerald jump into the hippest version of Old MacDonald you've ever heard, you realize this is no ordinary children's musical album. My personal favorite - and one that I have even heard my daughter's grandparents now singing - is "Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens" with some of the greatest lyrics on the album. The Johnny Jumper in our household gets lots of wear and tear during that song. There is only one song - comprised mostly of chicken "bocking" that can be slightly annoying - but other than that the songs compiled here are real gems. Hearing them together like this, it's surprising that they weren't recorded as a children's album originally - they fit so well together. So, enjoy "Yes, We Have No Bananas" and "What a Wonderful World" with your child and be prepared to watch them show interest in other music by these jazz standards. It is a marvelous introduction to a staple genre. So good, in fact, that my only criticism is that it is over far too soon.

This is a mighty fine cd of true jazz classics for kids; actually these songs are for everyone who has a sense of humor and has an ear for classic jazz vocals.

Kids love songs about silly barn animals or simple stories but "The Muffin Man" and "Old McDonald" interpreted by the likes of by Ella Fitzgerald are just a pinnacle listening treat; "Chicken Rhythm" by Slim Gaillard is infectiously adorable; another variety in listening choice is "Doop-Doo-De-Doop (A Doodlin' Song)" by Blossom Dearie and no one of youth or wisdom can go without hearing "What A Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong one of my personal favorite recordings of all time.

No kid young or old will resist moving with the rhythms of these tracks.

this is the best children's cd I own because not only do my kids love it but I love it. . . . real and legendary jazz musicians & vocalists, real authentic recordings from the Verve Vault, this ain't some guy down the street trying to make a buck with bad vocals like most of these.

why not have your kids listen to the best vocalist of last century: Ella Fitgerald??

Bottom line is that this is a super fun CD, the kids love it, and I get to feel good that I'm also turning them on to "america's music" at the same time.

Bravo to Verve - I love the liner notes also where it says these songs were "kid tested" by Verve employees children! way cool .....

We own probably a dozen or so various children's music CDs, and this one rates right at the top. My three kids (5, 2, and 1) absolutely love it! They listen to it on their CD/Clock Radio as they get dressed for school every morning.

What I really appreciate is that it is conveying the Jazz form to the kids at an early age. All of the other music CDs that we have are either classical, traditional (e.g., Veggie Tales), or more "popular." The music on this CD introduces my kids to "swing" and the syncopated rhythms that are key to jazz. I love to hear them try to sing along and play their toy drums to the rhythm. It also introduces them to some of the jazz greats such as Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, and Louis Prima (well, sort of a Jazz great).

I believe this is a must-have for any child's music collection.

This CD keeps my 10 month-old daughter fully entertained while I take a shower. It's not "jazz" like you might be thinking (abstract, hard to sing to), these are catchy tunes that you have heard many times before. There may be a few you don't know like the great song about potato chips. It's just too cute. I also like the muffin man...it's a classic.

Save yourself and your children from today's insipid "kiddie" music! This is a wonderful assortment of artists and songs for all to enjoy. Two cuts from Ella Fitzgerald recorded 20+ years apart give an indication of the change in her voice and style over the years; a surprisingly-mellow Louis Prima; Lionel Hampton on vibes in 'Ragg-Mopp'; Oscar Peterson on piano (on a cut that mysteriously fades out); and best of all, the CD ends with Louis Armstrong singing "Wonderful World" which will make you forget that it is often overplayed/overused and make you hug your kids (especially when you think he recorded it in 1967...a year when kids really needed hugging).

Unfortunately, the liner notes are non-existent--only songs, composer/lyricist credits and date of recoring. Introduce your children to the great American art form...you won't be pitching this CD out in a few years.

The vast majority of the American public probably think that Slim Gaillard is the name of a dieting program, Blossom Dearie is a porcelain nick-nack carried by Hallmark stores, C.T. is an abbreviation for a state or time zone, Louis Jordan is the guy who had a hit song called "Hello Dolly" (or was it "Hello Dearie"?), Carmen McCrae was that striking Irish red-head who beat up John Wayne in "The Quiet Man," and Ella Fitzgerald was a large black woman who needed to go on the Slim Gaillard Diet Plan. To insure your child is spared such ignorance, this little collection should fill the bill. Not that hipness is all. The tunes, rhythms, and lyrics are likely to be so much fun the tot will simply get into the swing of things with little encouragement needed.

It's not one of those cheapie discs, so one might question whether the compilers went with the short program in deference to short attention spans or to a restrictive budget. No doubt opinions will vary on what else should be included--from Bob Dorough's "Conjunction Junction" to Dizzy's "School Days" or "Salt Peanuts" to John Hendricks' musical history written and performed for children ("Evolution of the Blues) to Dave Brubeck's world travelog with Carmen and Pops along for the ride ("The Real Ambassadors") to Duke Ellington, preferably with narration ("Nutcracker," "Drum Is a Woman," "Concert of Sacred Music"), to Wynton Marsalis' music plus narration. Or perhaps the foregoing have simply gone out of print due to apathy and neglect. To insure that doesn't happen again, this collection may be just the ticket--but try to make it a parent-child shared activity.

Finally, I'm not the world's biggest Tony Bennett fan, but his 1998 recording, "The Playground," is a notable exception. Apparently few agree, because this neglected, out-of-print album can be picked up for a buck or two. I purchased 4 copies, one for each of the 3 grandchildren.
