Product Review:  Vanessa Trien and the Jumping Monkeys – ‘Bubble Ride’ CD (All Ages)

All Aboard!  Fasten Your Seat Belts! Release CD date of October 2!

I was first curious to hear Vanessa Trein and the Jumping Monkeys when I heard in their upcoming third album they were going to do a cover of the 1970’s iconic anthem “Free to Be You and Me”!  That either takes musical guts or will be a complete train wreck I thought and I wanted to hear it to see if it was worth it to add to my daughter’s musical rotation.  Since I am posting about it now on my blog, you can see it made the cut.  But why?  It was the beautifully done vocalization of the musicians and slight bluegrass mixed with a folk-ish feel that made this CD worthwhile for my family.  While most of the album is pretty chill, we also really dig the beats in the Yo-Yo Song and Deep in the Jungle!
