Award-winning Jack Forman, Drew Holloway, and Korum Bischoff (aka Recess Monkey) perform 15 original songs on their 14th album. Musical styles range from rock and funk to pop and rag time. Guitar, bass, and drums are the only instruments these polished musicians need to accompany their lively, catchy tunes. “Chewy to Your Han” celebrates a friendship between two boys who share a love of Star Wars. “Make It Up As You Go” features improvisational guitarist Mister Noodles. In “Just One More Thing,” a child tries to delay bedtime. And “Not For You” depicts a tricky child, who when he cannot get something from his parents, asks Grandma instead, who always comes through. The other songs include “All My Friends Are Here,” “That Laugh,” “Digging A Hole,” “Together,” “Stickin’ Right By You,” “Sing Your Song,” “Wake Up,” “Blankie,” “Get It All Wrong,” “Hey Puppy,” and “A Seed Doesn’t Know.” This excellent album will be appreciated by the entire family.
