JAZZ FOR KIDS COMPLETE SIX ARRANGEMENT SET [DOWNLOAD]
Recorded by the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra
Arranged by Wynton Marsalis, Sherman Irby, and Ted Nash
Edition: Six Jazz Big Band Arrangements
Here are all six of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra's Jazz For Kids arrangements that we publish.
We will let their leader Wynton Marsalis's website describe this wonderful album:
"Childhood favorites get the big band treatment on Jazz for Kids with a playful reimagining by the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis. Classics like Old MacDonald, Itsy Bitsy Spider, and Pop Goes the Weasel come to life as never before with versions sure to have the whole family bopping along.
Jazz for Kids also features The Today Show’s Hoda Kotb delivering a warm rendition of beloved nursery song Wheels On The Bus, reworked with a sophisticated arrangement that will delight children and kids at heart alike. Just as it’s never too late to find your inner child, it’s never too early to swing!"
Suffice it to say that this record is a truly rare example of jazz that is clearly for both kids and adults. A great way to introduce the youngsters to jazz big band music, with versions of songs that will be enjoyable for literally all ages. Absolutely ideal programming for a concert which will have lots of kids in attendance.
These are all available individually, and please click on any title for complete information.
