Putumayo Kids Presents: Jazz Playground
Bebop, swing and all that jazz: cool tunes for global kids!
Hilltown Families and Putumayo Kids have partnered up to offer a chance to win Putumayo Kids’ recently released Jazz Playground, a new CD collection of international jazz songs for children. From bebop and swing to Latin and African jazz, this multicultural CD celebrates the vibrant diversity and global influence of jazz and will get the whole family grooving! Jazz Playground demonstrates how artists in North and South America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Oceania have adopted jazz and made it their own.
Featuring a new, colorful storybook-style booklet and glossary of musical terms (image below), Jazz Playground pairs sophisticated sounds with kid-friendly lyrics. “Mary Had a Little Lamb” gets a jazzy new twist in the hands of New York City-based Israeli saxophonist and jazz educator Oran Etkin and Brooklynite Charanee Wade, while American artist Barbara Morrison delivers a smooth and cool version of the British classic “Sing a Song of Sixpence.”
