D is for Django Jones Cd Review


Is everyone excited for the release of D is for Django this great cd has a ton of songs a mix of pop and folk music. That is sure to get your attention. This album comes with 2 discs and has 27 great songs. My children love this album and kept wanting to listen to it. They have catchy songs that will find anyone singing along too. These cd's are geared toward children ages 4-9 and the run time of this album is 53 min.



D is for Django (named for Doris's charismatic Chihuahua mix) is programmed so that energetic tunes comprise the first half of the album, with softer songs and lullabies making up the second half.  "We wanted parents to be able to use the second half to help calm their kids down so they can drift off to sleep," explains Nate.  The songs range from educational ("Bones" and "Counterpoint") to food-oriented ("Breakfast" and "Popcorn") to self-empowerment ("Smallest Breed" and "All That I See"), and the lulabies are capped by a stunning rendition of a traditional kundalini mantra ("Long Time Sun").  Listeners get a "behind the scenes" chance to meet Doris, JJ, Nate, and even Django via the brief spoken intros interspersed between songs.



The album kicks off with "All That I See," a pop song about seeing people for the beautiful beings they are, which showcases Doris Muramatsu's glorious voice backed up by gorgeous harmonies from herDjango Jones colleagues layered over a mesmerizing, rhythmic ostinato.  The musical motion is seconded with other highlights like "P-O-P," a fun, rockin' ode to the most popular "popped" movie treat, "Bigfoot," an unlikely romantic ballad that offers a tip of the musical hat to the Shangri-Las' teen melodrama from the '60s, "Leader of the Pack," and "Counterpoint," a brainy tune that demonstrates, in a most engaging fashion, just exactly what counterpoint in music is.  Kids will have fun working out the melodic puzzle as they follow along with Nate's melody, Doris's melody, or JJ's melody and see how it all fits together. 

We really love this album and hope you enjoy it too. Ps. The release is today don't miss out!!!
