Album Notes
On 'Jemma's Journey' jump aboard the train heading for the zoo, dance with
the monkeys, get splashed by the elephants, hide from Mr Crocodile and race
around until you're tired and exhausted.

'Abi's Adventure' takes you to the farm on a slow old red bus with teddy -
who is always getting lost. Meet the angry farmer who's running from sty to
shed to coop searching for his pig, cow and rooster who are having fun
hiding from him.

'Jemma's Journey and 'Abi's Adventure' are 2 narrated stories with 16
original songs varying in style from jazz trio through pop to full size
orchestra all played with live instruments.

This CD was written by Vanessa King and Nigel Gomm, 2 professional musicians
who wanted to write an album for children and adults - one which adults
could bear to listen to for more than 3 minutes without turning off!

Nigel is a trumpet player in the London Symphony Orchestra (UK) and Vanessa
is the Early Years Animateur for the LSO (UK). The LSO education department
- Discovery, use this as part of their early years work and have just made
an activity pack to go with it.

Excerpts from this CD can be listened to on our web-site -

We hope you enjoy being transported into the magical world of
'Jemma's Journey and Abi's Adventure'.

My children will not get in the car without this!
Enter into the delightful world of the English countryside, shades of Enid Blyton for the 21st century. Beautiful narration (a voice like a young Jeremy Irons). My kids will not get in the car without it, in fact I had to order another when we wore the first one out! All 3 kids are word perfect - me too and I'm not even sick of it!

Jemma's journey & Abi's Adventure
My boys absolutely love this CD. We play it in the car all the time and they sing along and have a good chuckle at the funny lyrics and catchy tunes. It is so refreshing to hear a CD that uses such high quality singers and musicians. The vocal writing is terrific, the diction excellent and the orchestrations are funky and descriptive. What a treat to have live musicians instead of the usual synthesised rubbish you invariably get on kids CDs. Wow! I have bought one for my sister's kids too and may well buy more for friends. These should be on the shelves of all good music shops in Australia. Congratulations to CD Baby too. The freight was lightening fast and the CDs were packed nicely. Well-priced too. All in all a terrific product. All kids should have one.

Joanna Lewis. Violinist, Vienna.

This cd is the best cd for kids I have ever heard!
Once your kids have listened to this cd they will want it on all the time! The stories are terrific and the music fabulous and so well performed. I recommend it to everyone with children, or even without children!!

Mike Davies

High quality music and you won't mind listening to it again and again !
I hate long road trips with 3 screaming kids in the back, but I usually prefer to listen to them shouting, than put on another kids cd and endure the pain of cheap synth sounds from 1985 and bad singing.
Then I found this cd. It has real musicians on it playing real instruments, really well. It has a couple of great stories on and the songs are great and stand repeated listening. I even found myself humming them when the kids finally went to sleep !
I highly recommend this cd as it is the first kids recording that the whole family has enjoyed and hasn't made me accidentally lose it somewhere !
