Album Notes
WINNER Coalition For Quality Children's Media KIDS FIRST! AWARD
WINNER Independent Music Awards BEST SONG FOR CHILDREN for "Kangaroo!"

Alex Mitnick & Alan Bell are revolutionizing music and entertainment for children…contagious rhythms and lyrics that take grab of your heart and soul and don’t let go!

With two AWARD-WINNING albums to date, Alan Bell (lyrics) & Alex Mitnick (music) are thrilled to finally release their long awaited third GROUND BREAKING collaboration of ORIGINAL MUSIC & WORDS for children. Kaleidoscope Songs III: Animals We Dream opens with The Forest Of Our Minds, a celebration of NATURE and the beginning of an amazing JOURNEY across the globe into the WILD and WONDERFUL world of NINE FANTASTIC ANIMALS.

Within seconds listeners are brought to their feet by the infectious GROOVE of the drums, bass and DIDGERIDOO as we BOUNCE and JUMP to Kangaroo! What FUN! Next it's 1-2-3-SNAP!!! as we head South to the CAJUN inspired SWAMP FUNK BANJO and ACCORDION of Crocodile.We barely catch our breath before a Butterfly sweeps us away with it's GORGEOUS VIOLIN, VIOLA, AND CELLO arrangement transporting us to a MAGICAL place where FLOWERS bloom and sweet NECTAR fills the air... Ahhh.

As the MOON rises we see Monkeys In The Moonlight DANCING in the grass. GO! STOP! Little Grey Mouse runs across the floor dancing to this TECHNO track and slips out the door - yikes!!! Ever wonder what a Camel sounds like? The BOUZOUKI, an Egyptian Lute, will leave you MESMERIZED by the sounds of the DESERT LAND.Off we go to WEST AFRICA where the Great Grey Elephant sways to the DRUMS and the MAGIC of the BALLAPHONE - one of the GREATEST SOUNDS ever heard.

DANCER of the WAVES and FRIEND of LIFE - fly with the Dolphins through the sea. From the FOREST to the DESERT to the OCEAN deep, the Hummingbird brings us back to the Campfire, under the stars, SAFE in the NIGHT surrounded by the TREES, the ROCKS, and our FRIENDS and FAMILY all cozy and warm. Finally, we return from our journey as The River returns to the sea. WOW!! What an ADVENTURE!

That was awesome, I wish we were related. Each song has its own personality appropriate to its subject and geological distinction. Great array of instruments, you guys are a trip... around the world. Love the succession of the songs, the graphic quality of the lyrics, especially the alligator, they are so misunderstood. Also, glad you let that girl in the band sing up front, adds another dimension. Ya gotta love that mouse, and "Night is Here" is dreamy. Oh, and "Campfire", I love that one, that lower support harmony adds something as mystical as fire itself. Goodonya guys! You've added another new, colorful piece of glass to your kaleidoscope.

We saw Alex and the band in concert in June, and they were amazing. My kids (and I!) had a blast, but I only had enough money in my pocket to buy one CD. We picked this one and are so glad we did. I love having a kids' album that I don't dread listening to. I just purchased several copies of this CD for gifts as well as Kaleidoscope Songs I and II for my kids. We'd be serious Alex groupies if the band did more concerts in our area. As a mother and a teacher, I heartily recommend this CD.
