Best Recording for Little Jazzbos
Dotsero bassist Michael Friedman reaches beyond his usual smooth-jazz audience with Swingset Jazz, an album of adaptations of children's standards like "I've Been Working on the Railroad." Though the album is meant to be educational as well as fun, Friedman may be able to trick kids into thinking it's just the latter. Whimsical and high-spirited, Swingset Jazz adds another volume to the relatively small body of jazz works for children.
