Mellow jazz puts babies to sleep
Kind Of Blue and Pink
musical adaptations by Jon Crosse
Jazzy renditions of familiar and traditional songs form the perfect backdrop as parents prepare children for bed. Songs like Mary had a Little Lamb, Baa Baa Black Sheep, and Hickory Dickory Dock are very bouncy, but they soon give way soothing instrumental versions of L'Enfant Dors, London Bridge, Brahm's Lullaby, and Hush Little Baby. There are seventeen songs in all, which comprise over an hour of relaxing, sleep-inducing music. Little ones should drop off well before the end. Parents too will appreciate this stress-relieving album. It's a wonderful way to end the day.
