wonderful CD Mar 12, 2008
I'm not sure why I hadn't heard of this CD before. It is really amazing. It's got a nice mellow folksy style with beautiful voices, wonderful lyrics. It's a great CD for bed or just listening to. Highly recommended.
Delightful book, gorgeous music & a delicious taste of Wailin' Jennys 3.0 Oct 28, 2007
Down at the Sea Hotel features beautifully whimsical illustrations by Mireille Levert, inspired by the lyrics of a Greg Brown lullaby. The book alone would be worth buying, but the real gem is what's tucked inside the back cover: a 14-song CD that will be enjoyed not just by the kids, but by their parents and grandparents as well.
The songs, lesser-known lullabies written by well-known contemporary songwriters, are performed by top musicians of Red House Records. The this site product description for the audio CD (which can be purchased separately) has a full track listing showing all of the performers, as well as music samples.
The recording will be of special interest to fans of The Wailin' Jennys. It's the first CD with the Jennys' new lineup, which now includes Heather Masse (the group's third alto) and instrumentalist Jeremy Penner, who in early 2007 joined the founding members, soprano Ruth Moody and mezzo Nicky Mehta.
Even in an album full of lovely songs, the two performed by the Jennys stand out. With sparse, beautifully arranged instrumentation, the vocals shine. Masse sings lead on Neil Young's "Barefoot Floors," while Mehta takes the lead on "Trick Rider" by Gord Downie. Both songs feature the Jennys' signature exquisite harmonies. The Jennys also join all of the other singers on the opening and closing cuts. The closing, "Nothing But a Child" by Steve Earle, may well be the prettiest Christmas song you'll hear the entire holiday season.
The project is dedicated to the memory of Bob Feldman, the well-beloved founder of Red House Records. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Breast Cancer Fund, an organization dedicated to eliminating the environmental causes of breast cancer.
So what you have here is a delightful little book, plus a CD full of gorgeous music for kids and adults alike, all supporting a good cause. How can you miss with that?
