Album Notes
We, Keith and Ezra, have been playing music together since 1976 for people of all ages. This collection contains music taken mosting from our kids' albums, although there is a whiff of our adult stuff thrown in as well. Our master plan is to make music that both kids and adults can truly enjoy together. The opportunity to paly "live"with our musical friends in the relaxed setting of the KLRU TV sound stage was a joy. j We hope you have as much fun as we did.

“Our master plan is to make music that both kids and adults can truly enjoy together,” say the liner notes penned by Ezra Idlet and Keith Grimwood, also known as the eclectic folk duo Trout Fishing in America. As proved by this new live album, they’ve succeeded wildly. The two write some of the wittiest, most ingenious songs children’s music has to offer. For example, there’s “My Hair Had A Party Last Night,” surely the most creative explanation for bed-head ever devised, and “Mine!” a hilariously sinister tango sung from the viewpoint of a toddler who just won’t share. Family Music Party is a blast.

September 1998

One plays guitar, the other plays bass, and most of their repertoire is comic and original. Think of Trout Fishing in America (yes, that's the duo's name) as the Smothers Brothers for the next millennium. The live album includes a Cajun-flavored anthem to morning pillow hair, 'My Hair Had a Party Last Night'; a tuneful celebration of spicy Mexican food; a deliciously difficult British tongue twister from the 1920s; and a hard-rocking tune about a baby who grabs the family car keys and puts them in a most unlikely place.

'Help Yourself to a Party'
Second, a fish of a different color comes to us by way of Mutt-and-Jeff power duo Trout Fishing in America. Hearken back, oh Brautiganites! Their recent release is actually a recording of a PBS broadcast called Family Music Party that shows off their unique mix of harmony, humor and audience participation. Sixteen tunes and whaddya get? Some serious fun that will even lock in adults with short attention spans. This CD may actually be played in kidless cars! Yikes! My favorite title: 'My Hair Had a Party Last Night.' Keith Grimwood (bass and vocals) says of partner Ezra Idlet (guitar and vocals), 'We've always complemented each other. He's tall, 6'9' and I'm 5'5 ½'. One time we painted a house together and he painted the ceilings while I painted the baseboards. In music and everything else, that's the way it's gone with us.' Kinda says it all. Catch you on the flip side.

Terrific fun, smart and a musical pleasure. For kids and their folks.
We saw these guys at a free concert in the park at the Getty Museum, and discovered that they don't just raise the bar on children's music, but on music in general. Their music is fun, their musicianship is high, and their lyrics are not only smart, but unexpectedly hysterical. I was thrilled to find their website. We listen to Family Music Party over and over again because there's so much going on it's impossible to get it all the first few times. An instant classic for our family's music trove, and one that will be used until its scratched to smithereens and digital drop out forces us to order a replacement. I am compelled to now check out their other music as well.
