Editorial Reviews

2008 Grammy Award Nominee For Best Musical Album For Children!!!

The most wide-ranging CD from TFIA's 30-year career includes a stirring homage to Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks.

From breezy island vibes and rock & roll to cool jazz and bluegrass, TFIA celebrates our Big Round World with wit and wisdom.

"They embody a kind of goofball gestalt at odds with the sugary-sweet format of so much other music for the younger crowd." -- New York Times

5.0 out of 5 stars Trout Fishing for kids October 24, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Trout has penned lyrics that are easy for children to understand. Some songs are silly, others promote learning or good habits. At the same time they compose music that is appealing to children and adults alike, meaning that we "big people" aren't at risk of becoming bored with the music by the second time we hear the album through. Another fine effort from this musical duo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big Round World nominated for 2009 Grammy! November 20, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Greetings from the 'Trout House'

Trout Fishing in America are thrilled that their latest family release, Big Round World, was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Musical Album for Children category. This caps off a great year for TFIA. In late November, Big Round World was selected to top NPR's "The Year in Music for Kids" List for 2008. The CD also received a 2008 National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA) Gold winner and a Parents' Choice "Silver" Honor. In June, Performing Songwriter named Trout Fishing in America as one of their `100 Most Influential Independent Artists of the Past 15 Years'.

This is a particularly proud moment for Keith Grimwood and Ezra Idlet (aka Trout Fishing in America) as they produced this CD in their 'Trout House' studio. Idlet and Grimwood stretched out musically on this CD as well, playing even more instruments than on their past releases. Guitarist Idlet added percussion, mandolin and ukulele to his bag of tricks while Grimwood sat down at the keyboard to add that soulful B3 sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Children's Album December 11, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Wow, what a great new album from TFIA. I new it had come out, but hadn't bought it yet when I got the news that it has been nominated for the Best Musical Album for Children 2009 Grammy Award. It's full of great music that appeals to me and my son. The song that meant the most to me was "Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks". In this incredible political moment, it brought tears to my eyes to think of those who paved the way.

It looks like Amazon is backordered and they say you can't get this by Christmas. I went directly to the source ([...]) and I got an autographed copy in the mail in less than a week.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grammy-Nominated CD deserves this honor December 18, 2008
Format:Audio CD
As a long-time Trout Fishing in America fan, I was excited when I got my this CD. After listening to it dozens of times, it's no surprise to me that in the past couple months CD has taken top honors - a Grammy nomination & named Best Children's CD of 2008 by NPR.

The songs are fun, the lyrics original and the musicality is top rate. Don't wonder if you want this CD - you do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Instant Favorite! January 16, 2009
By MV
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
We loved this! We bought this CD for our six year old after seeing it on NPR's best Kids albums for 2008. We couldn't be happier. Our child loves it and we also enjoy hearing it again and again. It spans many types of music including folk, pop and rock. It is very upbeat and fun! The band collaborated with classroom kids to create a variety of music that includes humor and education. I have already given it as a gift to another family.

4.0 out of 5 stars Music For Kids August 31, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bought this CD for my grandson. He's an 8 year old, already game saavy, California Kid. My concern was that it would be too babyish. When talking to him about all kinds of music, I asked him if he listened to the CD I had sent him. He said "I listen to it all the time Grandma, it makes me happy inside". What better endorsement?

5.0 out of 5 stars Wacky - good clean humor and fun.
I bought this for my grandkids -- I've seen TFIA many times live before I had grandkids. Couldn't wait for my daughter to get busy so I'd have a reason to buy the CD.
