Jazz For Kids: Sing, Clap, Wiggle & Shake
by Various Artists
Released: Jun 2004
Everybody's going to get something out of this release. Ella Fitzgerald basically sings the pants off "Old McDonald" (could anyone else make Old McDonald's farm sound as jumping as Saturday night juke joint?) and Louis Jordan's jump blues turns "Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens" into a swing classic. Even the angular-voiced Carmen McRae softens it up for the kids.
