Bingo: Songs for Children in English with Brazilian and Caribbean Rhythms

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
Usually the notion of an album featuring "beloved songs for children" invokes a skeptical response of "good for the kiddies, but a big yawn for us parents." Thanks to inventive jazz pianist Roger Davidson and versatile vocalist Christy Baron -- who somewhat wordily subtitle their irresistible, toe-tapping collection "Songs of Children in English with Brazilian and Caribbean Rhythms" -- it might be harder to get the kids to bed. Fans of jazz, calypso, Latin, and these other styles won't mind a bit, however, as the whole house sings along with Baron on a jamming, tropical "B-I-N-G-O" which features a jubilant piano-sax improvisational swirl by Davidson and Oscar Feldman, ...

Usually the notion of an album featuring "beloved songs for children" invokes a skeptical response of "good for the kiddies, but a big yawn for us parents." Thanks to inventive jazz pianist Roger Davidson and versatile vocalist Christy Baron -- who somewhat wordily subtitle their irresistible, toe-tapping collection "Songs of Children in English with Brazilian and Caribbean Rhythms" -- it might be harder to get the kids to bed. Fans of jazz, calypso, Latin, and these other styles won't mind a bit, however, as the whole house sings along with Baron on a jamming, tropical "B-I-N-G-O" which features a jubilant piano-sax improvisational swirl by Davidson and Oscar Feldman, a swinging "Froggy Went a Courtin'," and a feisty, tongue-in-cheek, quartet-driven "This Old Man." Those are just the first seven minutes of 45 of the most charming moments you're likely to hear. Amid crisp, unpredictable arrangements of some very familiar material, there are a few unexpected song choices, from a folksy and sweet "Scarborough Fair" to a singalong-ready "Kumbaya." Davidson, who also contributes a few originals to the mix, is at his best on a bursting-at-the-seams piano solo amid the Latin shuffle rhythms on Raffi's catchy "Baby Beluga" and kicking the "Three Blind Mice" you know where to get them up dancing. Special mention should be made of percussionist Marivaldo dos Santos' potent contributions throughout, which are capped off with perhaps the most jubilant rendition of "Happy Birthday" ever recorded.
