I love jazz music. My 8-year old daughter and I listen to it every morning when I drive her to school. Now, she likes jazz. I purchased this CD so she could play music on her personal CD-player/radio. We are listening to the CD for second time in a row! Really great music for the young and old. . .I especially like that the artists on the album are from all over the world.
Increasingly, and delightfully, children's music is no longer stuck in the "cutesy" world of MIDI-accompanied nursery rhymes. Artists such as Ralph Covert, Milkshake, and Gwendolyn and the Good time Gang are giving us parents something we don't mind listening to in heavy rotation. The "Playground" series of CDs is a welcome addition to this library of intelligent kids' music. Varied selections, some very unconventional, all delightful.
So many good selections to choose from! "Spiderman" is a great starting point to draw kids' interest. "Gazuba" and "Little Lamb Jam" can't be beat. And of course,"This Little Light of Mine" has a distinction of combining blues and jazz.
This cd is now one of my favorites! I actually got it for my sons, but I think I'll keep it in my collection (I don't want to get it scratched). This is a great cd for kids though. Not only does it introduce them to jazz, but other languages too. - and it's tons of fun to jump around and dance to with the kids. Highly recommended!
