Rhythms of Childhood by Ella Jenkins
Esther Kreider Eash | Kansas USA | 07/07/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The album, Rhythms of Childhood by Ella Jenkins, has been in our family for over 20 years. Just recently I ordered the album (now a CD) for two nieces and was reminded of our relationship with this fine recording. We wore the original recording out during our summer travels, and it never became old for all members of the car.Ms. Jenkins provides a wonderful approach to children's musical literature. Her voice communicates directly with children, and adults find her easy vocals equally attractive. Her use of instruments is varied but never to the detriment of the music. In this album, the music is always first. It was a pleasure to reacquaint myself with this recording and refreshing to rediscover children's musical literature that is simple and unencumbered with the musical tracks that accompany much of children's musical literature today. Our special favorites: "The Cuckoo," and the final African impressions cut with "Oh Reign Oh.""
