CD Review: Kinderjazz - The One For Me
Kinderjazz - The One For Me
2007, Christobel Llewellyn
Kinderjazz has been offering up their brand of jazz for youth for many years. Part musical entertainment and part educational experience, Kinderjazz is truly something to behold onstage. Kinderjazz definitely leans toward the Latin side of the Jazz spectrum, and crosses the line into meringue and salsa at times along the way. The One For Me is a continuation of what they've done all along. That's Fine is a hot number that will have the little ones (and their parents) moving to the music. Playtime Blues is a little melodramatic, but a fair introduction to big band blues. Orange Pear Samba is a cute number and Secret Tuba Business has a James Bond for children feel to it.
The One For Me is a solid children's album. It’s definitely age appropriate for toddlers to tweens, although you may find the adults in the house like the album more than the kiddies.
Rating: 3 Stars (Out of 5)
