All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
Children's music machine Dan Zanes has been nearly unstoppable since converting to the genre in the early 2000s. The former Del Fuego has made it a habit of crafting amiable, intelligent songs for kids of all ages that cover the whole spectrum of popular music worldwide. 2009's 76 Trombones set its' sights on Broadway, collecting 17 stage classics culled from Sir Paul McCartney's MPL catalog. Taking a cue from earlier releases, Zanes and his talented crew of New York-based friends and family treat the whole affair and the source material with the kind of ramshackle, back-porch glee that can only come from cool musicians with cool kids look for appearances from ...

Children's music machine Dan Zanes has been nearly unstoppable since converting to the genre in the early 2000s.

Taking a cue from earlier releases, Zanes and his talented crew of New York-based friends and family treat the whole affair and the source material with the kind of ramshackle, back-porch glee that can only come from cool musicians with cool kids look for appearances from musical theater luminaries like Carol Channing, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Matthew Broderick de'Adre Aziza, and Derick K. Grant. While Zanes and crew manage to keep all of the melodies and theatrical frivolity intact, the collection is completely bereft of any ornamental pretense, rendering Broadway standards like "Hello Dolly" and "Gary, Indiana/The Wells Fargo Wagon" into new folk standards, resulting in a road trip compilation that both kids and their parents can agree on.

    WONDERFUL!

    I've been a Dan Zanes fan ever since my (then) toddler twins discovered him on Playhouse Disney. I bought a copy of his "Rocketship Beach" CD, and soon learned that Dan Zanes had much more to offer than a few of the catchy kids' tunes I saw on TV.

    Fast forward a few years... we now have all of his CDs, and I can tell you that each of them has stuff that's great fun for the kids, but it's all great for the grown-ups, too! It's not children's music... it's just MUSIC. There are some tracks that stay with me and I number among my favorite songs. Take his newest CD, for instance... I find myself listening to "I Am What I Am" over and over. "Mi Luna", a track on his "Nueva York!" CD is another one. "Welcome Table", "Linger for Awhile", "I've Just Seen a Face" (a poignant duet with his daughter)... I could go on and on.

    Here is my prescription for a happier life: Buy a Dan Zanes and Friends CD. Listen to it! If you don't play an instrument, learn one! (I'm working on the Mandolin right now.) Get together with your friends and family and sing and dance as often as possible. Don't forget to read his beautiful, colorful (and environmentally conscious) liner notes cover to cover for insightful commentary... he can paint a pretty picture with words, too. And make sure you catch him live whenever you can!

    Dan Zanes and ALL of his Friends have truly changed my family's life for the better. His music has brought us closer together in a way I never knew possible. It speaks in a language of wonder, joy, acceptance, and love for life. Often light, but never shallow, sometimes deep, but never depressing, frequently brilliant, but ALWAYS great.

    Good Job!

    I had to listen to the CD a couple of times, but by that time the CD had grown on me. It will be one of the Christmas gifts I give to the kids on my list this year.
