ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
~ "The Grand Scream of Things is scream-tastic seasonal fun, highly recommended." - Midwest Book Review.

~ "There's lots to love about this CD. It fills a tricky spot in the tween market in a creative and engaging way."
Babyology, Australia

~ "The Grand Scream Of Things is like Fibber McGee and Molly meets Sponge Bob on Halloween Day packed with more stream of consciousness adventure than even James Joyce could conjure up."
- Elizabeth Waldman Frazier, Waldmania PR

~ "A cool little corner of the Children's music world." - Shakefire.

The Scene:
The Grand Scream Of Things is a story about a boy named Andy Z who has one more chance to fully participate in everything Halloween (most importantly, to finally win 1st prize in the local costume contest- an accomplishment that has eluded him thus far) before he's considered too old to do so- but is forced to choose between this final opportunity to shine, and finding a young witch named Sandy who is revealed to him in a dream as losing her magic wand and being lost somewhere in Andyland.

He chooses begrudgingly to find the witch with the help of his faithful dog Reggie, chum Danger Dude, and alien “girl” friend (or is it girlfriend?) Pleadia. This quest for the witch takes Andy and friends through the “punkin” patch, to the school where teacher Jam Master Z gets them a cooking lesson from the Bakin’ Fools, and finally to the amusement park (with skater Blue The Rat) where they must enter the feared Bouncy House Of Horrors.

Andy does ultimately find Sandy Witch, but he also learns: it's not “the treats you eat” but “the friends you meet” that matter most.

A New Release by Multiple-Award Winning Kindie Artist Andy Z

Andy has teamed up with Grammy-nominated producer Tor Hyams to record his fifth studio album, a Halloween-themed audio play titled “The Grand Scream Of Things” released October 9th, 2012. This ambitious project is driven by Andy’s quest to bring a new vista to the landscape of music for the 8 to 12 year old set, and features guest vocals by contemporaries Paula Messner (Candy Band) and RhymeZwell.

The album also features prominent arranger Mike Rinta (trombone), Bobby Strickland (saxophone) and Mike Olmos (trumpet). These guys collectively have played with everyone from Santana, Grateful Dead, Sly & The Family Stone and Todd Rundgren to Etta James, Herbie Hancock and Taj Mahal.

The Beauty of Halloween
Imagine the most delectible bag of Halloween treats that you can. It's filled with your favorite candy, sometimes sweet, sometimes sour, but all your favorite. This Halloween my family and I got such a bag of treats. It's a CD called "The Grand Scream of Things." Our journey through life can be all different flavors, and with the help of good friends and the power of love we will all find our dream come true.
All this is depicted in an incredibly funny yet poignant Halloween themed story in which children of all ages experience their own hopes and dreams for Halloween. Amazing songs are woven throughout, lending exuberance and meaning to the story. This unique but strikingly familiar work of art will resonate in the hearts of the whole family long after the sweetness of Halloween has gone.
