Album Notes
Arrangements and Korg Karma Keyboard by Chris Stolpe. Harmony Vocals by Jennifer Peart. Background narration and singing by Emily Kaye and Abby Kaye.

"A folksy mom sings of simple childhood pleasures while breathing life into characters like Thumbelina. It's a great kid CD not to be missed by you." -Parenting Magazine

"...Kaye’s lyrics reflect a mom who closely observes her children’s interests. Reminiscent of Jonathan Richman’s sensibility, Kaye’s writes about the simple pleasures of hole-digging or sitting by the heater. Other songs tell magical tales of elves, unicorns, and tooth fairies. Her warbly vocals recall Natalie Merchant or Ricki Lee Jones... 'The Library Book' wittily recounts the tale of a rare and cherished book that the singer and her kids have checked out of the library over and over again. This song can help parents get their own kids psyched for a library visit or talk about the wonder of the library system. With Kaye’s well-crafted lyrics you can almost feel the dog-eared pages. Kaye's rich warm music is something that, like the beloved library book, families will want to play again and again."
-Eric Milvy, Common Sense Media (5 out of 5 stars)

"Children will be immediately drawn to Mary Kaye's appealing, strong, and rich voice...Kaye's sensitive lyrics reflect her understanding of the world from a child's point of view. Instead of asking the rain to go away in Rain, she invites it to stay, so she can splash around the neighborhood and dance in the rainbow. The subjects of the songs are everyday realities, such as sitting by the heating vent to 'warm my fingers and toesies!' Kaye has a real knack for turning ordinary topics into clever ditties."
-Naomi Leithhold, Booklist

"...Her sweet alto voice blends perfectly with Jennifer Peart's harmonies. Kaye's daughters Emily and Abby also contribute their cute preschool voices on a few of the songs. The musical styles of mostly folk and soft rock are beautifully performed on guitar and Korg Karma keyboard...this second album will be a great addition to any library's collection of music for children."
-Beverly Bixler, School Library Journal

"...a truly AMAZING voice!!"
-Kenny Curtis, XM Satellite Radio

"...Set aside the fact that families will enjoy this CD for hours, and set aside that 'Mouse Jamboree' will actually have children come away having learned something. 'I Love You a Million,' is worth the CD by itself..."
-Daryl Madore, The Times Record, Maine

Fun and Fabulous for the whole family and the neighbors too!!
What a find Mouse Jamboree is. Mary Kaye is a fantastic singer/song writer who really understands kids. When my minivan is filled to capacity with kindergarteners, I know it won't be long before the requests for the Mary Songs come in. I pop in Mouse Jamboree and they are happy and singing along. Of course with their teeth falling out like nuts off a tree, they just adore Tooth Fairy and Digging gets them pumped up. As for me, Love You A Million says it all in such an easy way. It goes straight to the heart. Buy Mouse Jamboree and experience the wonders of Mary Kaye. You won't regret it!!

Tara Oslund

very original
This CD is loads of fun! Very creative and original.

James Arieti Ph.D.

A fabulous collection of songs full of heart and love.
These are fabulous songs, full of love and full of heart! Children and their parents and their grandparents will sing them over and over again. I wish I had had this CD when I was a kid!

Cathy Alifrangis

Simple but fun songs that young children will love.
The subjects of the songs are appealing to the young. Rain puddles, sitting on heater vents, breakfast, the tooth fairy, and being the middle child are topics that will resonate with children. The upbeat tempo, Mary's soothing voice, and the rhythmic guitar blend with the message creating an easy to listen to, fun to sing along with, happy experience.

Susan Godel

Kids connect immediately with Mary' Kaye's songs
I'm just amazed at how fast my kids connected with Mary Kaye's music. Her first CD became an integral part of my children's lives -- we sang it everywhere. This one, Mouse Jamboree, has worked the same magic. These songs are about the childhood passions that grownups have forgotten -- like "Digging", her song about the simple joy of digging in the earth the wonders underneath -- a classic kid fantasy expressed with irresistable rhythm and wit. We are completely delighted with this CD and hope there will be more released by this artist.

My kids say: "The best song ever!"
It was quite a treat to discover Mary Kaye's music and "Mouse Jamboree" is perfect for my children, ages 4 and 6. There is a great variety of music from the danceable "Mouse Jamboree" and "Digging," which my daughter called "the best song ever!" to soft and sweet ballads like "Thumbelina" and "Tooth Fairy," my two favorites. Mary's voice is strong and clear and the lyrics are very imaginative, while being easy for kids and grown-ups to relate to. Certainly a fine new addition to music for children!

Denise Croteau

Love It!
This CD is terrific to sing along with and dance to. My daughter and I have a "dance party" every day. This is our favorite CD.

Dave D'Aran

Catchy, Intelligent
Mouse Jamboree is a step up from Mary's first CD(I sang it just for you)The songwriting is more confindent, the arranngements are more vivid. Mary's music is not just for kids, I find myself singing right along whenever I play it for mine-- A BOW WOW WOW WOW!!!

L Fitzgerald

Very entertaining and enjoyable
I usually get annoyed when I listen repetitively to most of the kids music that is out today. NOT in this case, Mouse Jamboree is very entertaining and can be listened to over and over again with out becoming ill. The songs are enjoyable and makes the commute to work much more palatable. It's something both me and my son can agree on!

Alexis Dascoulias, Education Director

Great for creative drama classes!
Mouse Jamboree is perfect for the classroom! I am teaching a creative drama class using Fairy Tales and we sing and dance to "The King of Elves" in every class. Mary Kaye's songs are a delight! They are out of the ordinary and the tunes and lyrics encourage kids to be creative!
