“Broza is back! Four-time Emmy-winning composer/performer Jamie Broza announces the March 15 release of his first new children’s album in five years, I Want a Dog! (Good Mood Records, $12.99, for ages 3 – 7, run time 41 minutes). The Latin-infused album features a guest appearance by Jamie’s cousin, Israeli superstar David Broza.
Although I Want a Dog! opens with some fine canine rhythmic banter on its title track, don’t expect 41 minutes of strictly dog talk. Get set for more surprises than you ever thought possible on one disc. For many of the songs on I Want a Dog! Jamie Brozahas brilliantly called upon the sophisticated stylings of Brazilian bossa nova, which experienced a tidal wave of popularity in the 1960s but often flies under the radar of today’s young families…. I Want a Dog! follows Jamie Broza’s critically acclaimed children’s albums Bad Mood Mom (and other Good-Mood Songs), winner of the Parents’ Choice® Gold Award and named by Parents’ Choice as one of the top 25 children’s CDs in the last 25 years, and My Daddy is Scratchy, winner of the NAPPA Gold Award. The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review praised Broza’s music as “definitely kids’ listening fare…. Broza gives each song its own personality, using funk grooves, drum programming or show-tune jazz to keep the songs moving.”
Jamie credits his family’s rescue dog, Dusty, adopted from North Shore Animal League America, as his muse for I Want a Dog! In gratitude, Jamie will donate 20 percent of the profits from this album to North Shore Animal League America, and he hopes that this CD will encourage others to adopt rescue animals.”
I’m always looking for good children’s music for my kids to listen to- that doesn’t drive me crazy. This can be a challange! LOL. But I love Jamie Broza’s I Want A Dog CD– it’s so funny and cute. Jamie is hilarious. My kids really enjoy it too, and my 2 year old is already starting to sing along. I love it for the car, because it’s my kids always beg to watch a movie, but usually I can distract them because they love this CD so much. It has a Brazilian/Latin flavor, which is very unique and good for my kids. You can listen to this kids cd on Good Mood Record’s website and check it out for yourself!
