Orange Sherbet's soon-to-be-released Delicious album is just that--a delicious mix of cool, eclectic sounds for families everywhere!
My kids and I had the opportunity to review the album, set to release on May 15th, and couldn't help but notice how well the band's name fit the album. The album was, what my daughter would call "chill." It had such a fun mix of music which celebrated "the foods of spring, summer, fall, and winter and the joys of growing, preparing, and enjoying nourishing, delicious meals."
Delicious really was like a culinary musical feast with songs ranging from the jazz-influenced title track exploring the many flavors of food to a rock anthem in praise of waffles! Other songs include “Farmers’ Market,” in which folk and rock combine with a dash of pop and a pinch of gospel, and “Chase That Pig,” where opera meets Zydeco. There’s even a nod to Santana in the Latin infused “Rice and Beans,” a song that is also a Puerto Rican recipe taught to Steve by Tamsen’s husband, Eduardo. The album’s finale, the “Garden Song,” was inspired by the simplicity of Kaulana Kanekoa and Vince Esquire’s version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” with just three voices and ukulele, recorded live.
My kids and I had a great time listening to the album and building up our appetites the whole way through!
Delicious will be available online at www.orangesherbet.org, amazon.com, cdbaby.com, and iTunes.
