The product: Delicious by Orange Sherbet is a great children's CD. This is Orange Sherbet's 5th album. Here is a little more about the album:
A MUSICAL FEAST OF SEASONAL FOODS DELECTABLE, JAZZED-UP, AND COOL!
“Jazzy jammin’ and folky strumming soup up this electric hodgepodge of rhythm-propelled ditties.”– Parenting magazine review of Orange Sherbet’s Big Brother, Big Sister
“It’s a wholly winning sound … timeless songs sound fresh, and new songs sound like they’ve been part of the canon forever.” –Zooglobble review of Orange Sherbet’s Campfire Sing-Along
BERKELEY, CA (March 2, 2012) – Top-notch musicians praise the delights of eating seasonal, locally grown foods! The award-winning Bay Area group Orange Sherbet serves up its most abundant family platter yet with its fifth album, Delicious. Set for release on May 15, Delicious is a tasty, jazzed-up, seventeen-song musical celebration of the foods of spring, summer, fall, and winter and the joys of growing, preparing, and enjoying nourishing, delicious meals. Five years ago, Orange Sherbet’s Tamsen Fynn participated in the Eat Local Challenge with her husband, professional baker Eduardo Morell. They spent a month preparing and eating local foods grown and produced within 100 miles of home. Around that same time, Tamsen was introduced to the Local Foods Wheel, a wonderful tool for discovering local, seasonal food in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her creative energy went into high gear, and she soon found herself spending hours at the kitchen table with a pile of cookbooks and a long list of foods, on a quest for dishes that were mouthwatering and would lend themselves to musical treatment. With the enthusiastic agreement of Orange Sherbet bandmates Jill and Steve Pierce, both of whom love savoring a good, home-cooked meal, Orange Sherbet embarked on writing music for Delicious. Recalls Jill Pierce, "We fell in love with every food we wrote songs about. What started as an inspiration to create a celebration of foods in season became a meditation on every bite." Tamsen Fynn adds, “Everyone who worked on the CD needed regular lunch breaks, because we all got so hungry listening to the tempting descriptions of rice & beans, sautéed vegetables, or al dente pasta. This might be the first time a child who hears our music wants to taste bok choy, rutabaga, and mustard greens!" Delicious encourages adventurous eating as it moves happily through the seasons of the year, with songs ranging from the jazz-influenced title track exploring the many flavors of food to a rock anthem in praise of waffles! Other highlights include “Farmers’ Market,” in which folk and rock combine with a dash of pop and a pinch of gospel, and “Chase That Pig,” where opera meets Zydeco. There’s even a nod to Santana in the Latin infused “Rice and Beans,” a song that is also a Puerto Rican recipe taught to Steve by Tamsen’s husband, Eduardo. The album’s finale, the “Garden Song,” was inspired by the simplicity of Kaulana Kanekoa and Vince Esquire’s version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” with just three voices and ukulele, recorded live.
Orange Sherbet has been featured in Parenting magazine, San Francisco magazine, the San Francisco Chronicle, DailyCandy Kids, SF Weekly, Zooglobble, and more. The band’s award-winning body of work includes the CDs Jackson’s Lullaby (2001), Ridin’ (2003), Big Brother, Big Sister (2005), and Campfire Singalong (2007; recorded with the band Hot Buttered Rum and featuring special guest Dan Zanes on an Orange Sherbet song written especially for him). Delicious will be available online at www.orangesherbet.org, amazon.com, cdbaby.com, and iTunes.
What we thought: My son has been listening to this CD a lot. He was first drawn to it's colorful, creative album cover. He enjoys this music. It's fun to listen to. The style of music is fun, relaxed and a lot of jazz sounding songs. Really great stuff!
I like the theme to this CD. It's all about good, healthy food and making it fun for kids. My son is in a stage right now where he recognizes healthy choices in food, so he strives to make those decisions. I'm not saying he always eats healthy, but given the choice he makes sure he eats his fruits & veggies before other stuff.
