ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
For his fifth family CD, Big Jeff has created a cycle of fresh new songs for the frosty holiday season, designed to help everyone stay “Warm for the Winter.” Children can watch the snow fall outside while singing along to the title track, or the rocking “Hot Cocoa” or the danceable “Disco in the Snow.” “Sleepy Bears” is a lilting lullaby, perfect for hibernating. The holiday songs include “8 Candles (plus the Shammes)” a Klezmer-powered Hanukah number, “Small Flying Reindeer in the Sky,” which inspires young ones to gallop along on Christmas Eve, and “Habari Gani,” translating the universal principles of Kwanzaa from Swahili to English over a driving African beat.

To bring this multi-layered, multi-genre, multi-cultural music to life, Big Jeff enlisted some top-notch talent. “Warm for the Winter” was recorded and mixed by grammy-winning engineer John Seymour, whose credits include U2, Dave Matthews, and Santana. It features the Chops Horns (Alicia Keys, the Police) and Bob Lynch (Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes) on keyboards. Jeff’s friendly, melodic singing and guitar playing keep his playful lyrics front and center. It all adds up to a spirited new seasonal offering!

This Man Understands Children
My son and I have been big fans of Big Jeff for years. He just keeps getting better and better. There is indeed a warmth in this collection of songs that comes through in his voice, the instrumentation, the melodies... . "Disco" and "Hot Cocoa" are high-powered humor (I would never have thought of singing about Hot Cocoa in heavy metal, but I wish I had!), "Blue Sculpture of a Cow" is a wonderful, quirky tribute to a true friend, "Habari Gani" a lovely way to "translate" an African song for young American ears, and finally, "People Around Me" is a masterpiece for young or old audiences, a deeply moving and textured mantra of love.
