With an eclectic artist roster that features
major names in the music, television and
film worlds, the Jazz Baby CD series offers children an
entertaining introduction to the sophisticated arrangements and
advanced rhythmic concepts of jazz/blues music that both
children and parents will love to listen to again and again.
Jazz Baby is simple in concept: a collection of traditional children's
songs, or standards that appeal to children, performed by a variety
of distinctive vocalists interpreted within a jazz (or
blues) framework-that is, with a bit of swing, sophisticated instrumental
interplay and adventurous arrangements.
The Jazz Baby lineup includes:
veteran actor/comedian Jim Belushi,
Emmy winner Megan Mullally ("Karen"
from Will & Grace ), much-honored actress Cybill
Shepherd , the ambassador of New Orleans R&B and
jazz, Dr. John, Manhattan
Transfer's Janis Siegel, redoubtable
keyboardist Billy Preston (whose
resume lists credits ranging from sessions for The Beatles to
his own chart-topping hits "Will It Go Round In Circles"
and "Nothing from Nothing"), the staunch
proponent of the natch'l blues Taj Mahal,
Latin/R&B sensation Poncho Sanchez,
critically acclaimed veteran song stylist Freddie
Cole (Nat's younger brother), young Brazilian phenom (and
Verve recording artist) Claudia Acuna
and many others including Rosemary Clooney.
