Shakin A Tailfeather CD
This collection of fourteen full-throated songs is drawn straight out of the heart of African-American music for children. Some selections are playground staples ("Oh Mary Mack," "Little Sally Walker," "The Name Game") while others recombine well-known elements. The voices are richly varied, the backups modulate from jazzy to hymnlike, the rhythms from infectious to gentle: a wholly satisfying album on every level and for every listener. A 1998 Parents' Choice Gold Award.
