From the funky, horn-rich opening song, “Hootenanny,” to the sweet lullaby, “Begin the Day Again,” that ends Jambo’s latest CD, Steve Pierson has penned 14 original, positive songs that will leave smiles plastered on the faces of the whole family. The talented musician boasts that he used 10 different guitars on this CD, but listeners will also revel in the equally expert sounds of the Texicali Horns, Herb Pedersen on banjo, and 8-year-old vocalist (and Pierson’s daughter!) Lucy. Recommended for kids ages 4-9, “Hootenanny” is brimming with “the kind of organic, rootsy music that I love, and that I feel is missing in much of kids’ music these days,” says Pierson. We couldn’t agree more.
