Review:
Veteran children's recording artist Marcy Marxer mixes swing and folk styles in playful renditions of original and traditional songs with bubbly, bouncy lyrics. "Jump Children," "10 Cats Down," and "Rock-A-Bye Boogie" alternate with a captivating instrumental version of "Pop Goes the Weasel" and an unusual, plaintive arrangement of the traditional lullabye, "Hush Little Baby." "Skinnamirink," with a children's chorus; "Grandpa's Farm," and "If You're Happy" are cozily familiar and "Ride 'em High/The Cowpoke Dance" invites toe-tapping participation.
