Red Grammer brings his incredible voice and irrepressible playfulness to Character Development on his newest CD, BeBop Your Best! Truthfulness, Responsibility, Kindness, Fairness, Integrity, Citizenship... and many others, have never sounded so good or been so user-friendly and fun as when this pre-eminent Family Artist gets his joyful heart around them.
For the past twenty years Red Grammer’s extraordinary commitment to creating value-centered music has won him Parents’ Choice Classic & Gold Awards, a USA Today Kid Pick, appearances on Nickelodeon, The Disney Channel, and the Today Show, and a featured artist role on the 2004 Grammy-winning “Best Musical Album for Children”. He is also a favorite attraction at performing art centers across the U.S. and a frequent keynote presenter at national and regional educational conferences throughout North America.
This collection of smart and delightful songs are the result of a powerful songwriting collaboration between Red and Pamela Phillips Oland, a veteran songwriter whose songs have been recorded by the likes of Arethra Franklin, Whitney Houston, Selena, Frank Sinatra, Peabo Bryson, Reba McIntyre, Gladys Knight, Anne Murray, and many others.
Red's amazing vocal talent, the musicianship of L.A.'s top session players, and a guest appearance by world-renowned trumpeter Maynard Ferguson, make "BeBop Your Best!" one classy album.
Here’s what some smart people are saying about “Bebop Your Best!”:
“Red Grammer is probably the only leading kids performer who has the conviction, spunk, and sheer talent to pull off an album built completely on Character. If you think ‘truthfulness’, ‘responsibility’, ‘citizenship’, and ‘integrity’ sound like a real snore… think again.”
Jim Davis, creator of Garfield
“There has never been anything like ‘Bebop Your Best!’ in the Character Education world before. Powerful, funny, moving-- each song is a lighthouse guiding us on our way. Hooray for Red Grammer!”
Dr. Michele Borba, author of Building Moral Intelligence
“’Bebop Your Best!’ is one of the most dynamic, lively, enjoyable, and beautifully orchestrated albums of children’s music on character building ever!!"
