Children's Album w/ Bobby nominated for Grammy

From the Chicago Parent:

HOUSE PARTY, Dan Zanes and Friends, Festival Five Records, $15,
http://www.festivalfive.com/; ages 3-8.

Dan Zanes’ music captures parents looking for the best in children’s music. This is Zanes’ fourth and newest release, and to my ears, each of his CDs gets better.
As with his other CDs, Zanes mixes up some fabulous original songs (“Shining Star”) with great traditional songs (“Old Joe Clark,” “Down in the Valley”) and treats them all with an edgy rock/folk style. And the star-studded cast of support on all of Zanes’ recordings is impressive. This project features Bob Weir, of the Grateful Dead, singing “Wabash Cannonball” and Philip Glass collaborating with Zanes on the final piece, “A Place for Us.” If you haven’t listened to any Dan Zanes music, this would be a great place to start.
