Following the idea that it's never too early to get someone interested in Jazz, "Jazz, Baby!" is another "Jazz for Kids" CD, this one Jazzing up classic nursery rhymes for a big band. This group, led by trombonist Doug Beavers Rovira, doesn't hold back musically. The arrangements quote Machito, Nelson Riddle, and Stan Kenton, and are all old school big band Jazz with shouting horn solos, screaming brass sections, and energetic vocals by Matt Catingub and Linda Harmon that include a couple of spots of overdubbed Four Freshmen-like harmonies. It's fun music and even adults can get something out of it?if you can tune out lyrics about the Hokey Pokey and the Itsy Bitsy Spider.
