I Want A Dog by Jamie Broza....Review and Giveaway!

 Are you looking for some new music to get your kids bee bopping?  Jamie Broza has a brand new CD out called I Want a Dog and it is sure to be a hit with the little ones in your life.  In case you have not heard of this acclaimed musician, here is a little background....


Broza is back!  Four-time Emmy-winning composer/performer Jamie Broza announces the March 15I Want a Dog! (Good Mood Records, $12.99, for ages 3 – 7, run time 41 minutes). The Latin-infused album features a guest appearance by Jamie’s cousin, Israeli superstar David Broza.

Although I Want a Dog! opens with some fine canine rhythmic banter on its title track, don’t expect 41 minutes of strictly dog talk.  Get set for more surprises than you ever thought possible on one disc.  For many of the songs on I Want a Dog! Jamie Broza has brilliantly called upon the sophisticated stylings of Brazilian bossa nova, which experienced a tidal wave of popularity in the 1960s but often flies under the radar of today’s young families. This is music that never gets in the way of the lyrics, creating the ultimate story-song setting.   Listening to I Want a Dog! is almost like listening to the sound track of a hysterically zany home movie -- a document of off-the-wall family fun creatively imbued with terrific comedic timing and brainy humor.  

 


My friend and fellow blogger scooped up this CD for a recent road trip with her kiddos to help pass the time and this is what they had to say...


My boys and I listened to this CD in the car on a road trip.  The boys found most of the songs amusing and fun and were wiggling around in their seats.  For this mom, though, this was one of those CD’s I can not see myself playing on a regular basis.  This is a definite kids CD and even includes kids singing.  It just wasn’t something this mom could groove to and I found myself skipping tracks before they were truly over because repetition in lyrics would start to get to me.  I think this CD will live in my boy’s bedroom so that they can play it on their CD player whenever they wish and I can just shut the door. 

* I read lots of other reviews of this CD online and I seem to be the only one not “into” it.  I think it’s definitely just a style preference.  

It sounds like a toss up....Mom does not love it so much but the boys loved it!  Now if I know Colleen, she will be letting those two adorable boys of hers play it over and over again because that is what we parents do....let the kids run the music show!  If you are looking for a sure kid pleaser, Jamie Broza's I Want a Dog is sure to fit the bill.  You can pick up your copy today from the following retailers: www.goodmoodrecords.com, amazon.com, bigkidsvideo.com and cdbaby.com.

It takes you behind an upscale hillside neighborhood and an electricity substation, then quickly disappears into nature as it switchbacks downhill to a streamside campground. [url=http://www.2012canadagoosepascher.fr]Canada Goose[/url] Ski boots break the rules of layering, because the boot liner serves as the insulating layer. I got to deal with a couple of weeds/berries/greens at a time, usually keeping up despite my meagre staffing. Should be .035" before top dead center on an HS40 on the compression stroke(both valves closed).
