All I Want by David Weinstone CD {Review & Giveaway}



Multi-faceted independent children’s recording artist David Weinstone, whose music videos are seen daily on the Nick Jr. channel, announces the March 8th release of his newest Music for Aardvarks and Other Mammals CD, All I Want! The highly anticipated disc is the first full-length album of new songs in three years from one of the most influential children’s songwriters of our time.

Comprised entirely of new songs, All I Want! is David Weinstone’s sixteenth Music for Aardvarks recording. In this album, Weinstone continues to push the envelope both musically and lyrically, soaring through an exhilarating range of styles and executing them with superb musical literacy and a richness of instrumentation.  Weinstone brings authentic childhood experiences to life with a sophistication and intelligence rarely seen in the kids’ music genre, updating and incorporating the best of the past to create music for today’s children that is grounded in tradition, yet culturally hip.

About David Weinstone 

David Weinstone is a phenomenon.  A Berklee College of Music-trained ex-punk rocker, Weinstone literally changed the face of children’s music by introducing songs pertinent to lives of contemporary children – songs that weren’t about eensy weensy spiders, but about taxis, subways, bagels, and playdates.   Music for Aardvarks and Other Mammals began in 1997 as an “alternative” music class for young children and their caregivers.  Demand was strong not only for the classes, but also for recordings of Weinstone’s original songs, so he began to produce albums, which sold like wildfire.  He eventually formed The Music for Aardvarks Band, started performing live shows, and, ultimately, came to the attention of Nick Jr.  David Weinstone’s music videos are now a steady presence on the Nick Jr. channel, and Music for Aardvarks classes are offered in locations throughout the U.S. and around the world.

ace and friends thoughts:
If you watch Nick Jr. with your kids, chances are, you've seen David Weinstone. His music is fun, easy to sing along with and entertaining! Music for Aardvarks and Other Mammals - All I Want! cleverly begins with "Hello" and ends with "Goodbye". The songs are an eclectic mixture of  pop/folk/rock/blues styles to emphasize one message:  “All I want is me and you!” The kids especially loved Bathtub Soup and Count to Ten. They all giggled at all the silly voice changes. It's a very charming album that I know that we will be listening to it over and over again.
