Outta School!

Fall 2007 Music
Ages: 6 - 10 yrs.
Producer: Steve Blunt
CD Price: $14.99
Review:
Steve Blunt's collection of fun tunes travels the chronological pattern of the school calendar. "Back to School" a clever snapshot of a kid's trepidation of the summer's end; A "Snow Day" is cause for celebration, and "Johnny Wants A Guitar for Christmas" illustrates the dream of every star-struck kid, including one suspects it's author. Blunt, along with his group of talented musicians, gives traditional songs such as "Fanga Alafea / Liza Jane," an African flavor with bass guitar and very rhythmic djembe percussion. "I Love U. . . Kulele" is a snazzy tribute to his second favorite instrument, and "Pumpkins Beware" is a truly spooky cautionary tale sung from the pumpkin's perspective.
