All Music Guide - Adam Greenberg
Part of the World Playground series on the new sublabel Putumayo Kids, Caribbean Playground takes a nice little romp through the Caribbean, making stops at most of the major islands and including a bit from elsewhere. The course of the album bounces around from location to location, but since this is a kids' album, it keeps a light sound. To summarize, this is much more Bob Marley than Peter Tosh. Taj Mahal starts the journey with his Hula Blues band, followed by Desmond Dekker showing off some ska on the classic "Jamaica Farewell."

Part of the World Playground series on the new sublabel Putumayo Kids, Caribbean Playground takes a nice little romp through the Caribbean, making stops at most of the major islands and including a bit from elsewhere. The course of the album bounces around from location to location, but since this is a kids' album, it keeps a light sound. To summarize, this is much more Bob Marley than Peter Tosh. Taj Mahal starts the journey with his Hula Blues band, followed by Desmond Dekker showing off some ska on the classic "Jamaica Farewell." Kali plays the banjo over a little bit of mixed Martiniquean music, and Keith Frank covers "Three Little Birds" -- in zydeco here's an interesting twist on a sound if there ever was one. Frenchman Karl Zero enlists the remaining Wailers to help out on "Coconut Woman," and Marlene Dorcena represents a bit of light Haitian song. Making the first trip to Trinidad, Asheba shows off some soca groove, mixing in folktales of Anancy that have made the way from Africa -- the requisite cultural storytelling for a kids' album. Puerto Rican expatriate Jose Gonzalez shows off some bomba, another Haitian act plays a bit of the resurrected twoubadou, and Tongan reggae fanatics MissionIriez take on some transcontinental reggae. Finishing off the album are Luc Leandry's zouk and another round of soca from Trinidad. The sound can be a bit juvenile and repetitive for adults from time to time, but then again, adults aren't the audience for this one. That said, the artists are almost without exception standouts in their fields, and the music is of high quality as a result. As such, the album makes a nice groove for anyone, regardless of age.

    There have been two releases of Caribbean Playground. At the time of this review the online description is of the original release to which I would give 5 stars. My granddaughter dances to it on every visit and listens to it over and over. I enjoy it too. I did not find the recent release as enchanting. There are three new pieces and four of the original songs are no longer there, including a couple of our favorites.

    I received the new release when I placed this order. The new release starts with Atlantik's All Aboard, which is number 12 on the original. I would recommend the 2004, if you can find it, but this one is a lot of fun as well.
