let the baby loves jazz band guide your child through a few simple lessons on the piano, the drums, the bass, the trumpet and the baritone sax. extra credit comes watching the wheels on the bus and happy and ya know it.>

my two kids were down with baby einstein but when i played jazz records (yes records!) they really got smart. so i merged my two worlds of at-home-dad by day and music-industry guy by night and the result was baby loves jazz. sure the kids are going to love the music (they love most everything right?) but the not-so-secret-secret here is that mommy and daddy are gonna dig it too. no surprise - the baby loves band is made up of some of the finest musicians in the world including sharon jones, john medeski, steven bernstein, babi floyd, john ellis, aaron goldberg, omer avital, ali jackson and miles griffith and many more.

the band's debut recording "go baby go" is out on verve records and a whole series of books will be released (with educational cds attached too!) on penguin as well. and all of that is a bonus to a dad like me, but really, the ultimate reward is that both of my boys not only love the music, but they now use the word "jazz" in their vocabulary and even request it when they're in the mood.

so that's the story. baby loves jazz, and folks, i'm not talking about that ken burns museum jazz - in 2006 there's a whole new generation of young players taking this music to a whole new level - many of them are featured on these recordings. the music is alive and kicking - if you want to check for yourself we recommend getting into band's like MMW, the bad plus, sex mob, charlie hunter, sharon jones and others listed on this site. okay. feel free to let me know your thoughts. andy loves thoughts.
