Review:
Ella Jenkins, a seminal figure in children’s music, has been recording for children since the 1950’s, collecting songs from around the world to enrich singalong times and broaden horizons. Here, Jenkins is heard singing with young children in 1969, and the session’s simplicity—a few instruments, the unpretentious blend of voices, the flowing rhythms and lyrics—invites today’s listeners to join in, too. Highlights: "Blue Walking," about a dog trying to find his master.
