ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From the opening call of the Western Meadowlark to the final fading crystal of The Riddle Song, Ann Zimmerman’s children’s album celebrates the irresistible wonder of music. With Ann and her young backup singers, there’s no reason to ask, “Why, oh Meadowlark, do you sing?” Meadowlarks – and children – find music in everything.
Most of the songs are ancient favorites – The Fox (went out on a chilly night), Pop! Goes the Weasel, Polly Wolly Doodle. In her album graphics, Ann explains, “Childhood songs become lifelong friends. Here are some of my best friends.” (Kid-friendly photos, graphics and liner notes are available in PDF at www.annzimmerman.com.)
Her two originals fit seamlessly with the classics surrounding them – the comforting Lullaby Waltz, and the title song, Meadowlark, that begins and ends with the voice of the bird itself.
The arrangements seem to be simplicity itself – acoustic and straightforward – but pay attention. Everywhere are surprises. The dog himself joins the choir on B-I-N-G-O. Hole In the Bucket turns into a comical, lifelike conversation. Hush Little Baby builds layer upon layer of quiet instruments to carry you to dreamland. And then the children become The Instruments.
Even among the traditional tracks, some are freshly unfamiliar. Crocodile! is a tall tale from the early 1800s where the croc is 500 miles long. Katy Cruel, from the mid-1700s, is a riff of tongue-twisting dissatisfaction enhanced with penny whistle and pump organ.
Young imaginations will listen time and time again. And each song comes with a “LISTEN FOR” section in the liner notes encouraging the child listener to hear the song in a new and deeper way.
Make sure the children you know meet Ann Zimmerman’s Meadowlark. They – and you – will remain friends for life.
