More fun than a litter of kittens!
Nicole Harpe | 01/16/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am familiar with Mr. Lester's work, so when I found this CD, I had to get a copy. It is delightful. The wealth of music about cats is amazing! I played Copland's Cat and Mouse in a recital many years ago. I had no clue there were so many other cat tunes out there. The Cat duet that closes the CD is very funny. Zez Confrey's Kitten on the Keys rings so true - if you know cats. Please don't let the "cute" idea behind this CD make you think the compositions or the performances are second rate. Nothing here is second rate. Noel Lester is a true artist and I admire his skill. The voices are full and rich. Even the short snippets of poetry work beautifully and I ordinarily don't like spoken word combined with my music. All the spoken word bits are very short, less than 25 seconds.You will enjoy the playfulness and artistry of this CD. Look for more music from Mr. Lester. He is an American treasure."
My Doggies Went Nuts When They Heard This CD!

"If you love cats, or if you hate them, I'd say you'll LOVE this CD! It's clever, witty, beautifully packaged; and the music is wonderfully played --- one gem after another! Couldn't recommend highly enough. Meow!!"

"A very delightful album. Makes a great gift.
There are some rare musical treats that involve cats."
