Review:
Singer/songwriter Charity Kahn and her jammin' band create soul and rock 'n roll vibes authentic enough for any adult fan, but not at the expense of the young target audience. Catchy melodies and wonderfully imaginative, meant-to-be-heard lyrics aim straight for a child's spirit, eager mind and dancing feet. This is one memorable—and happily repeatable—album, from the lively “Happy Fluffy” (“You're gonna gyrate, undulate/fibrillate, circumnavigate/you're gonna rotate, pulsate, fluctuate/vibrate, oscillate, no time to wait”) and “Partner Dance” (“Jump up and down like a speckled frog/go bouncin' 'round the room/make some rollin' thunder now/make your feet go crash and boom”) to the heart-filled “Happy Birthday Baby” (“It's about love/it's about life/it's about you/your groovy far-out self/it's about your little light/come on baby let it shine”).
