Please help me find exciting jazz pieces that might entertain my (almost) 4 year old son!
So, recently, I acquired Disney's The Aristocats
, and it's been on semi-permanent repeat with my (almost) four-year-old and my (almost) two-year-old.
I don't mind so much, it's a cute film, and I get a kick out of much of the voice acting. And this tune
is a favorite with the offspring.
So, I'm in my truck with the kiddos, fiddling with the radio. For some reason or other, my kids have outgrown The Clash, and the (almost) four-year-old says: "Dad, can you play some JAZZ
I switch it over to the local high-school's jazz station, and it's all California-made electronic easy-listening jazz. Pretty much a failure on all parts.
So, I know, the usual responses of Miles Davis and Louis Armstrong (hell, I'm a Louisianan ferchrissakes), but, I'm looking to make a 'special' CD full of exciting, iconic jazz tunes, with a bit of vocal and heavy horn, as I think that's what the kiddos are looking for.
I'm happy to take any suggestions you fine folks have....
