Format: Audio CD
Combine a lively story with a wonderful selection of songs and you will see this CD grab childrens' attention and imagination. Claire's adventure includes clever musical voicings and various instruments that bring the jungle animals to life. The arrangement and composition of this CD paint a beautiful picture, accented with the voices and talents of Dee Dee Bridgewater, Al Jarreau, and Hubert Laws, as well as the wonderful talents of writers/ composers Steve Barta and Mark Oblinger. Seven-year-old Isaac loves his copy and calls it "my jazz" and 2-year-old Rachel (who already has her own mini piano) stopped in her tracks the first time JJKids played! Dancing followed immediately. Fans in southern California would love to see this performed live!
Get an extra copy to donate to your neighborhood elementary school. This is a perfect gift to introduce jazz to young children and the box set includes a CD of songs-only for the young-at-heart jazz enthusiast.

I've followed this project for a good while now. The story line and music are great. It definitely keeps the kids engaged, singing and dancing along. The performances of Hubert Laws, Dee Dee Bridgewater, and Al Jarreau are simply wonderful.

Can't wait to see this performed live!

We really enjoyed listening to this. We got if for our grandkids. We have not heard if they like it.

It felt like it was the sound track to a cartoon? Have not had time to look to see if there is a video version of this.

Well worth the money.

I don't know of any children's music that has this sophistication of sound. Lyrics and arrangement make this a very special album not to mention the talent performing. Is it pop jazz ? Don't know but as an adult you can get hooked. Very catchy. I could see a few of these songs re-recorded into the future and becoming jazz classics.

I saw Jumpin' Jazz Kids performed live with the Milwaukee Symphony. It was wonderful to see children so engaged in the story and to see the kids lifted from their seats. They were dancing in the aisles! Jumpin' Jazz is a great way to introduce your children or grandchildren to music that they can "feel" and get enthusiastic about!
