Bring the whole family to 2 special matinee performances celebrating the release of Go Baby Go (Verve), a new CD featuring jazz interpretations of classic children’s songs and more, performed by some of the hottest names in jazz. Created by music industry veteran Andy Blackman Hurwitz, Baby Loves Music began as a way for parents to introduce their children to different genres without dumbing down the content or presentation; it’s real music played by real musicians. Go Baby Go, which was produced by Hurwitz and trumpeter Steven Bernstein (Sex Mob, Millenium Territory Orchestra), features a number of children’s favorite songs interpreted in a variety of jazz styles. This afternoon's all-star band includes the sassy Sharon Jones (the Dap Kings) and the versatile Babi Floyd (Rolling Stones, Steely Dan) trading off on vocals, the inventive John Medeski (Medeski Martin and Wood), on keyboards, backed by Bernstein on trumpet, Lonnie Plaxico (Dizzy Gillespie, Cassandra Wilson) on bass, and John Ellis (Charlie Hunter) on saxophone.
