You have to admit there are few things as fun as jumping in the puddles as a kid. So I have to say that is a great theme for the newest album from the award-winning children's edutainment band, Steve Elci & Friends. Their album Jump in the Puddles conveys the joyful enthusiasm of playing in the rain.  Steve Elci & Friends will definitely be making a big splash when it comes to continuing to entertaining families with their kidcentric style of American Roots music when Jump in the Puddles is released on July 13, 2013.

Reinforcing ideas of the simple pleasures of life, Jump in the Puddles weaves a musical fabric that includes varicolored threads spun from a fine sampling of Americana -- '60s music, 12-bar blues, country, and more -- in performances of exceptionally high quality by singers and players who display a thorough understanding of the medium and a total mastery of their art, produced by a team that knows how to deliver a great sound.

This is an album sure to bring kids and parents together for a bit of singing, dancing, clapping, and, of course, jumping! Jump in the Puddles kicks off with the album's title track, making splendid use of the 12-bar blues, complete with all the earmarks of this original American musical form. Next up is "Teddy Bear," a track that revels in the sound and spirit of early rock 'n' roll. This is real American roots music enhanced by an expanded palette of instrumental color and solid choral back-up, almost a musical glossary of treasured sounds from the '60s. "Supersonic" could be described as an American roots tip-of-the-hat to Cole Porter's "You're the Top," redolently filled with an unabashed sense of pure joy.

Because of all the wonderful memories I have as a dad of my kids enjoying themselves playing in puddles this album really hit home with me and I appreciate the Roots vibe of its performances.
