Review:
This CD is a dynamic follow-up by New York entertainer and music educator Joanie Leeds to her enjoyable City Kids CD. Leeds has one of those big, beautiful rock 'n roll sopranos that can go full-out or soft and tender and she uses it to full effect. Her tuneful melodies and rich, funny and thoughtful child-respecting lyrics give depth and irresistible zip to songs about sunglasses at the beach, goodnight hugs, popcorn popping and creative blame-shifting ("It Was the Elf"). Her title track makes you want to pick up a guitar, "I Like Jazz" and comes from the heart ("when I was a little kid, I loved my Ella, Billy and Miles, I did"). "I Wanna Be Green," Leeds' version of that "save the earth" children's music staple, avoids preachiness with a bubbly, dance-along beat.
