Listening Lounge: Back To The Garden from Ted Jacobs Review & GIVEAWAY (closed)

House At The Corner Music proudly announces the newly released Back To The Garden album from musician and composer Ted Jacobs. This collection of songs happens to be based on a selection of poems from Robert Louis Stevenson's A Child's Garden Of Verses and is a companion to Jacobs' award-winning recording, A Child's Garden Of Songs.
I had the opportunity to review this album and found it to be a beautiful reflection of the world of a child! The album, inspired by exquisite poetry of Robert Louis Stevenson, truly encourages children to reflect, dream, and nurture their imaginations! The songs allow listeners to be taken to a place of happiness, peace, beauty, and love!
I completely see that Ted Jacobs’ soft, gentle rhythms and spirited tunes are the perfect match for the poetry and provide a way for them to be enjoyed by all!
The album includes various singers and musicians who have put together some outstanding acoustic performances. “The resulting collaboration has such a way of lighting up the meaning of the poems that children find themselves memorizing without even realizing they are doing so. The poems are sung exactly as the poet wrote them. Nothing is repeated, nothing is deleted and the singing, both ensemble and solo, rings with artistic integrity and beauty.”
Lately, I have found this CD to be a great help when it comes to our sleepless baby. Rocking her with some gentle music in the background really helps her calm down, and me to relax and not get frustrated with my lack of sleep!
