Here is what Lynne Heffley of the Los Angeles Times said about Johnette's 1999 Silver Honors Parents' Choice Award winning CD "From The Gumbo Pot" -- "The yummy ingredients in this rich musical gumbo include the spicy Louisiana lilt in Johnette Downing's voice, and irresistible Cajun and Creole rhythms in playfully evocative songs about 'gators, 'skeeters, crawfish, a stroll by the bayou, a boppin' kitchen band and a werewolf named Loup Garou."

The songs are so much fun to sing.
Johnette performed at the school in which I teach. I bought the cd for my class (visually impaired students). They love the cd!
I am sending the cd as a Christmas gift to a nephew up north. Thank you for shipping it in a timely fashion and in great condition!

Awesome - as I knew it would be!!
THis cd is a great one to share with friends and family who have young children. The songs are easy to learn and sing along with and the melody of each song can stay with you all day. I love listening to it when the children aren't even around!! Thank you for the opportunity to share Louisiana in a positive and happy way!!
