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

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 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."

I have read other reviews that say this CD is fun for parents and kids alike. I cannot agree more. My husband and I love that when it is still in the CD player in the car and we are out on our own we don't feel compelled to change to something else. I got the CD based on my 15 month old son's reaction to hearing the song "Where's the Music?" on our satellite. He grooved to the funky beat, and has ever since. If he is fussing when I am buckling him in his carseat all I have to do is ask him "where's the music?" and he stops and perks up waiting for me to turn the song on. My 3 year old son loves the hip-hop version of "Patty Cake/Peas Porridge Hot". All of our childrens CD's were stolen from our vehicle recently and I was very upset until I discovered that because this CD was still in the player it hadn't been stolen. Of all of the the kids CDs we have this is such a favorite that it greatly took the sting out of losing all of the others. I can't wait until they come out with the next great record.
4.0 out of 5 stars Hot jazz, kid-friendly! July 16 2008
By Harvey Woodmeadow - Published on Amazon.com

If you're a fan of MMW, you'll almost certainly love this CD. If you're a kid, even better. :) "Where's the Music" is my kids' favorite song; has them in stitches every time. "Pirates Don't Take Baths" is another popular one.

My only complaint is that the CD does occasionally devolve into more "serious" MMW material, or includes a song that's just straight-up kid-friendly lyrics and structure but no jokes. The kids and I still like it (a lot!), but it's obvious MMW have a fantastic sense of humor and it would have been great to have had a CD that was more completely filled with that great juvenile silliness.

Oh well...better than any Barney CD any day, by far. Ranks right up there with classics like "Peter, Paul & Mommy", "Free to be You and Me", or Woodie Guthrie's stuff. Nice to see that artists are still producing fun, intelligent children's music. The classics are still great, but having new stuff as well is even better. :)
5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for kids Feb. 8 2008

Great album from beginning to end. Kids will identify with the familiar melodies hidden in these all original works, and parents finally have an album they will look forward to listening to with their kids.

MMW are in their usual fine form, and great guest appearances help round out this worthy addition to their discography.

I made the fortunate mistake of ordering this without having any idea what it was, except that I love MMW. This is kid music. Interesting, cool kid music. 40 minutes plus or minus of songs to sing or play with your children. I like it, but some will probably be expecting instrumental jazz/funk/without the lyrics.
