These are songs that the entire family loves. They're funny, hip, rockin', beautiful, happy, scary, inspirational and moving. They cover the musical map from R&B to reggae, country to classical, and from the Beatles to bluegrass to blues. Parents are certain to love this album just as much as the kids do.
Just imagine what it's like to be a kid living in Nashville and a song you wrote gets recorded by a Grammy winning artist that you've heard many times on the radio. It inspires kids to be creators, to work together, and to write about what is on their minds. As profits from sales go to more music enrichment programs, it also does a lot to bolster their musical education.
The Nashville CD is an exciting partnership with one of the most innovative orchestras in the country, the Nashville Chamber Orchestra. Produced by Kid Pan Alley founder Paul Reisler, who produced John McCutcheon's seminal children's albums, Fred Bogert, producer of perennial kids' favorite Trout Fishing in America, and Paul Gambill, Music Director of the Nashville Chamber Orchestra, there has never been another children's album like it.
Kid Pan Alley is a national program that brings songwriters into schools around the country. Check out the 1st Kid Pan Alley CD, Tidal Wave of Song and keep your eyes open at www.KidPanAlley.org for news of upcoming CD's from Portland, ME, Roanoke, VA and another from Nashville.
"Kids' music that is exactly that: Music for-and by-kids. The songs are written with a charming honesty and whimsy that only children can create. Unquestionably the most original kids' CD I've heard all year." XM Satellite Radio
"From the first notes you are hooked by the joy that went into this project....It's an album as ageless as the community that has created it, and that rings true with just one listen...Music that can be enjoyed by the entire family." MetroKids Magazine, Philadelphia, PA
Paul Reisler is the founder and Artistic Director of Kid Pan Alley as well as Trapezoid. He's just released an album with his new group, Paul Reisler & A Thousand Questions featuring Howard Levy, Angela Kaset and Ysaye Barnwell called At Night the Roses Tango.
