Editor's info:
Nursery rhymes have never swung as hard as they do on this new recording from the Doug Beavers Rovira Jazz Orchestra. With dynamic arrangements, vocals by Matt Catingub and Linda Harmon, and a top-fight band of San Francisco and LA-based musicians, this recording will appeal to young and old alike. Jazz Baby! was the brainchild of a Bay Area couple who wanted better music for their new baby that they too could enjoy. Composer/arranger/trombonist Doug Beavers Rovira ran with the idea, taking his band & arrangements into Skywalker Ranch with the multi-Grammy winning engineer Leslie Ann Jones, for a tight and exciting set of music. Doug is a long-time member of Eddie Palmieri's band.

"Here is your opportunity to bring up baby on some legit jazz with a swingin' band and vocals by Matt Catingub and Linda Harmon. I have two grandkids in Philly and one on the way in L.A., and you may be sure that they'll love receive copies of this delicious disc." -- Jazz Society of Oregon by George Fendel

Imagine a Toddler Las Vegas, a Rat Pack of sippy cup totin' hipsters ... I'm pretty sure this would be the music they would be digging! Now, I've said before that if a kids' performer decides to record nursery rhymes or folk tunes, they'd better bring something different to the table. And much like Josh Levine's salsa-fest Josh Levine for Kids or Rockosaurus Rex's metalhead heaven The Big Bang, the Doug Beavers Rovira Jazz Orchestra does just that: Classic kiddie tunes are given a super swingin' treatment that'll have your junior Chairman of the Board's fingers a-poppin'.

Jazz, Baby! is an amazingly solid collection of songs, performed by a crack team of musicians, and sung by Matt Catingub and Linda Harmon. No low points or draaagging tracks here: From the opening horns of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" to the subdued 4/4 - 3/4 arrangement of "Brahms Lullaby", play this one from beginning to end without reserve. Highlights include the Steely Dan / Manhattan Transfer-style vocals of "Itsy Bitsy Spider"; the Louis Prima / Keely Smith samba of "She'll Be Comin' Round the Mountain"; and the big, wide-open organic production of the whole project - very tight but very real (sounds like you're in the same room with the whole band!).

Kids who already know these songs will get the biggest kick out of listening to Jazz, Baby! ... I can just see 'em, cranking this album up and singing along as loudly as they can! Also highly recommended for parents who are sick of listening to the same damned CD of classic kids' tunes ... This fresh but familiar bunch of preschool hits will make a great addition to classrooms, libraries, and homes. -- Children's Music That Rocks by Warren Truitt (from the Donnell Central Children's Room at the New York City Public Libary)

"Doug Beavers Rovira isn't the first bandleader to reach out to the "diminutive demographic," but he may be the first to do so without pretense or condescension. In other words, Rovira doesn't play "down" to toddlers and children, he raises them "up" by clothing nearly a dozen nursery rhymes and songs in clever orchestral arrangements that would please even the hippest adult listeners." -- AllAboutJazz.com by Jack Bowers

"Mr. Doug Beavers has once again displayed his strong arrangement and production skills. Jazz Baby is a fine piece of work." -- Eddie Palmieri, 2007 (Legendary 9 time Grammy Winning Artist)

"The whole project is first-class because of Rovira's arrangements and the singers.....the band swings mightily and soloists shine" -- JazzTimes Magazine by Harvey Siders
