Sun Songs

by Dan McKelvie

A wonderful journey through a day. From the Bossa Nova/Pop inspired “Are You Sleeping?” to the dreamlike and Beatlesque “Row, Row, Row Your Boat.” these seemingly familiar melodies are reimagined for adults and children. Dan says, "Play Loud."

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Riddle of the Sphinx:
Which creature walks on four legs in the morning, two legs in the afternoon and three legs in the evening?

This album has been a labor (labour in Canada) of love for a number of years now. My first thought was to re-interpret some popular kid's Mother Goose-type songs in a smooth, quick-paced Bossa Nova style which we could play in the car on our journeys. The prime directive? The lyrics and melodies couldn't be sappy.

Eventually the selection of tunes and reinterpretation of melodies became a work of art in itself. Some songs stayed, some got cut, some are fast and some are slower dreamy reminiscences. The assembly of the works into a logical sequence followed the riddle above - morning, noon and night representing a lifetime. (Kind of why the CD is a good idea but you can play them out of sequence - if you download the tunes).

I think they're great for the car and great for headphones. I hope you like the music and the journey.
