Check out the fabulous new Cuddlebug Parade CD by Michal “Peanut” Karmi!
Peanut sweetly sings about the joys of playing in the mud, eating colorful vegetables, savoring a beautiful day, or just plain being silly. In a nutshell: celebrating things that matter. A jazzy mix of ukulele, string bass, trombone, trumpet, clarinet and a tasteful sprinkling of percussion underscore Peanut’s sweet vocals. Highlights include “Little Bear Blue,” which was written for Alicia Silverstone’s son Bear Blu; “Stompin’ At The Market,” an activity song that’s especially fun when it “jumps” to a faster tempo; “My Outfit’s Not Complete!,” a two-beat ode to the polka-dotted, striped, and plaid occupants of the closet; and “Abuelita,” a Spanish song with nice stand-up bass accompaniment. Peanut also includes several spoken word interludes chanted to an invigorating rhythmic pulse, such as “Six Little Pickles,” and “The Big Bug Band” (a nursery story-time answer to rap, backed by some fine action from drummer Josh Collazo of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, plus hand claps and supporting rhythm vocals).
