Over the course of twelve, mostly high-energized songs, singer/songwriter Dana Cohenour sings in a strong and expressive voice about a range of subjects designed to get children moving. The jaunty title track opens the album, followed closely by the country rock of "Wiggle Workout," the blue-grassy "Barnyard Hoedown," and the rocking recycling song "Do My Part." Other highlights include the vaguely Mexican "Jumping Bean," the twangy counting song "Five Green and Speckled Frogs," and a jumping jazz, animal-imitating rendition of "Follow The Leader." The album concludes with the restful and sentimental "I Love Mommy." Jump & Jam Tunes features tuneful, original music, professional musicians, and a set of good songs written and performed by a skilled vocalist.
