Best local kids' recording - 2000
Wheeeeeeeeee: Songs & Stories for Kids by Front Range Artists
The project of music-school director Sue Schnitzer, a mother, musician and music educator who's led hundreds of toddlers through the ropes of finding their rhythms early, Wheeeeeeeeee: Songs & Stories for Kids by Front Range Artists has a little bit of everything, including some of the bigger names in the local kids'-music industry. Contributions from such talents as Lois LaFond, Bonnie Phipps and Liz Blackburn & Sean Masterson intermingle with lesser-known cuts, but every centimeter of the CD is a gem, from Cindy Wilkinson's whimsical "Jumping Beans" to Blackburn and Masterson's "Ya Gotta Have a Mustache." It's guaranteed to get kids -- and maybe you, too -- up and dancing.
