Product Description


Let's Go Everywhere is the kind of record that kids-music insiders get all wound up about, and for a reason that can be summed up in two tidy little words: it's awesome. Yes, when classifications must be made, Medeski Martin & Wood are sometimes thrown into the jazz genre. And yes, as musicians go, they're a pretty sophisticated outfit. But that hasn't prevented them from maintaining a direct line with their pirate- and pat-a-cake-loving sides. Everywhere rules because it's un-self-consciously funky ("Cat Creep"), uncondescendingly cool ("Where's The Music"), and unspookily moody ("Far East Sweets"). It's so obviously the product of three guys who know how to grow grooves, but also know how to grow bonds with 4-year-olds, that it makes other kids albums seem audaciously contrived, not to mention intolerably boring. Retentive types won't flinch from filing it alongside classics such as Schoolhouse Rock, Really Rosie, and the Sesame Street compilations. And four out of five preschoolers--maybe more like 499 out of 500--won't disagree: Medeski Martin & Wood merit the inclusion. --Tammy La Gorce

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun Oct. 21 2008
Format:Audio CD
This CD, which as a great application of Medeski Martin & Woods usual style to something that Children can enjoy. It features adaptations of songs like I've been everywhere Man and makes them Kid friendly. A favorite of mine is Pirates don't take baths & where is the music. My daughter is only 3 months, but already enjoys dancing to this CD with her Daddy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Should Somebody Get This If They Don't Have Kids? June 19 2008
By The Delite Rancher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"Let's Go Everywhere" is a fantastic listen for kids and their parents. Children's albums typically hire mediocre studio musicians, run a cheap production and talk down to kids. In this sense, "Let's Go Everywhere" transcends the typical children's album. There is a balance of vocal oriented songs and the type of funk infused Rock instrumentals that have become the hallmark of Medeski, Martin and Wood (MMW). In addition to Rock and Jazz, the recording is threaded with tones of R&B and the Blues. The songs that feature vocals are good. While 'Pirates Don't Take Baths' is a highlight, the title track is the blockbuster. 'Let's Go Everywhere' is a reworked version of the classic 'I've Been Everywhere.' Most are familiar with the Country tune through Hank Snow or Johnny Cash. As done by MMW, the song is a funky call to travel. The ditty will travel on a loop through any listener's mind, long after the stereo is turned off. A few tracks on this project even feature children doing spoken word and some singing. 'The Squalb' is an entertaining spoken word story. 'Old Paint' offers an introspective retelling of the cowboy song. One of the benefits of this project is that it is very catchy; the musical hooks will quickly grab any listener. The downside of catchy music is that it tends to get old quickly. Indeed, while this is a fun listen, it doesn't have the staying power of MMW's typical fare. All in all, the answer to the question posed by the title of this review is yes! There's material here that is sure to become part of MMW's cherished studio canon. "Let's Go Everywhere" has something for both adults and children. While the descriptor "all ages" is used a little too loosely to describe children's media, it really fits "Let's Go Everywhere."

5.0 out of 5 stars a family album April 1 2008
By William Klemm - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
i was pretty excited to buy this album, because i've been a long time fan of MMW. i was, i'll admit skeptical as to how my two boys would react. but i have to say i think that they like it as much as i do, so it's been the sole resident in the kitchen stereo since it came home.

and that's the best part.

it's not just for kids and tolerated by adults, nor for adults and tolerated by kids.

every one in my house loves it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great album from a great band! Feb. 13 2008
By Joshua M. Thamm - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album knowing MMW's material pretty well. I got it for my best friends' daughter. (8 months old) MMW didn't disapoint once again! This is a great kids album from one of the most creative groups out there today. My niece loves it, and I'm glad to be able to start her off with great music that I enjoy, (and that she can relate to).
If you're reading this, buy any of the other MMW albums, and you will not regret it. (I suggest Shack Man. Personally my favorite) AND, go see them live! The live shows are amazing to say the least. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect! Feb. 3 2008
By Z. Pike - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Having been a mom for about 2 years now and an MMW fan for well over a decade, I was thrilled when I found this CD. My son loves to groove and dance to this and always gets moving when I start the disc. I am shocked by the reviewer that thought it was a "stupid concept" not just because our family loves it, but because many child-less friends of ours have said how much they enjoy it, too.

I highly recommend this for any MMW fan with a light-hearted side, kids, or both!
