Synopsis

Amazon.com
When your brood's in a mood, tell 'em (as Duke Ellington surely would've) it don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing. Maria Muldaur's Swingin' in the Rain is just the ticket to perk things up and get those kiddos shuffling off to Buffalo rather than to the time-out corner! With a generous helping of horns, along with guitar, bass, and keyboards, Muldaur puts her sweet and lively spin on swing with revamped renditions of yesteryear's pop. "Aba Daba Honeymoon" is a zingy little number sure to get the gang singing along between giggles and "If I Knew You Were Comin' I'd've Baked a Cake" is pleasantly sassy. "Animal Fair" is a welcome inclusion sandwiched by the nonsensical "Mairzy Doats" and "A Bushel and a Peck," a tune for tuning up the old shuffle-ball-change and waltz-clock combinations. --Paige La Grone
 

CD Reviews

5+ stars for maria and the three little fishies
bzmom55 | Scottsdale, AZ USA | 10/01/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In my continuing quest to find music that my children and I can listen to (often over and over and over again), and something (ANYTHING) to substitute for the Thomas theme song after we have played it constantly for over an hour, I purchased this CD. This CD was a hit even for my opiniated three year old twosome. Now at least we can alternate Thomas with the "Three Little Fishies". They have even developed hand signals for the "little fishies" swimming "over the dam" and the BIG SHARK. The other songs on the CD are great too and I hope that we will be able to hear more of them too some day. Thank you Maria for another wonderful CD."
Sensational

"I was given this cd by Ms. Muldaur when she visited Milwaukee. Hearing her sing these great 40's tunes that were made popular by many of the popular singing stars back then is wonderful to listen to especially now that she has cleverly incorporated jazz and swing to the melodies. Her voice is sultry and pleasing to the point that you keep wanting to hear more and more. I haven't regretted buying this particular cd. It's sensational. I hope she does another 13 children's songs with a jazzy and swinging background."
What a great CD!

"We just received this CD today, and it is awesome! Maria Muldar has the best voice, and it's so cool that she did a CD for KIDS! My 9 month old son loves it! It's up-beat, and you can really boogie to it! =)"
