Kinder Jazz’s newest album “Teddy Bear’s Picnic” is a jazz filled musical adventure that’s catered to kids but enjoyable for the whole family. The titled song “Teddy Bear’s Picnic” was a surprisingly enjoyable song that was purely instrumental and had a nice flow and rhythm Jazz sound all the way through. In the song some parts hit faster than others with subtle transitions keeping you engaged throughout the song and not sounding like you were listening to the exact same sound from start to finish.
The album also carried 10 other Jazz filled songs, with the musicians singing as well. I was able to listen to the whole album and my top songs outside of “Teddy Bear’s Picnic” has to be “Do The Latin Alphabet” (thanks to the latin salsa dance moves I wanted to while listening to it haha) and “What’s Cooking Double Booking”, for another refreshing instrumental Jazz song that I could listen to while doing my work.
Overall, a pretty cool album that’s a good listen for anyone at any age. Check out the educational Jazz songs yourself below!
