tunes : nicky's jazz for kids


blowing bubbles : practice is essential : less is more

Hi Everyone!

My brother gave me Nicky's Jazz For Kids a few years ago and I really love it. This CD introduces 'children' big & small to the joy of jazz with fun, light-hearted songs performed by some great jazz legends like Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong and Dizzy Gillespie.

Chew Your Bubblegum by Ella Fitzgerald inspired the photo and it took forever! Thanks to Martha McQuade for recommending a wireless camera remote, which kept this project from taking an eternity! I found out after stuffing three pieces of Bubble Yum into my mouth at once that blowing a big bubble does not require a lot of gum. Quite the opposite. You can learn more in this tutorial. See, you always learn something new round here ;)!

Have a great weekend! Go blow some bubbles, but sugar-free gum only, please.

xo, Cindy
