This isn’t your everyday kiddie album. Originally a music therapist for children with special needs, Jim composes his high-energy, jazzy songs to get kids up and moving–and as importantly, to encourage parents to join in. I know the thought of dancing toddler-style might be embarrassing, but trust me, you can’t resist when Rhythm in My Fingers starts streaming out of the speakers.
At a recent concert in Columbus, I got to witness it all first-hand: Parents were dancing! And jumping! And acting silly! (And I was, too…shhhhhh.) I asked Jim for his number one piece of advice for moms and he said, “Play with your kids. They’re only this young once, and it’s a great excuse for you to act silly with them.”
Good advice from a good guy. And definitely a good album for your collection. –Christina
