Review:
The Bee's Knees, a trio comprised of singer/keyboard player Andie Duncan, singer/percussionist Cyndi Duncan-Lumsden and multi-guitarist Joe Gaitanis, together provide a joyful sound centered on twin female vocals both strong and expressive. The twenty-one original songs, which mostly take a "feel-good" approach to music for younger children, are about nature and animals like "Sunrise", "Flowers in the Garden," "Clouds," "Trees in the Garden and "Little Mouse," while other tunes include environmental concerns ("Recycling Bin"), nutrition ("Broccoli Muscles") and daily rhythms ("Bath Time" and "Bedtime Express"). The group occasionally falls into slightly over the top deliveries on their between song banter, but it's the songs themselves - the lyrics and the musicianship - that deliver wholesome sing-along fun.
