Album Notes
It’s been far too long since Tom Knight has released a children’s recording. He hasn’t lost his touch; The Library Boogie has all the whimsy and sensitivity of his former works, but he’s grown in sophistication and style. They all sound, to quote the title of one tune, 'Just Right.' Other songs include the title cut, in which books come out and dance all night: Children will enjoy hearing the names of favorite stories in this one. There are positive, reassuring tunes about divorce and stepfamilies, educational songs about the solar system and honeybees, and an exquisitely sweet fantasy called "Bally Roo." A high percentage of the numbers are top-notch. It’s never preachy but it offers both lullabies and sophisticated tunes like "Invisible Girl." And I wouldn’t be surprised if parents found themselves singing along too. – Susan Weitz, Ithaca Times

On his fourth album, Tom Knight presents 13 original songs in an assortment of musical styles, including ragtime/boogie, swing, 60’s style rock, R&B, Western Swing, jazz, and folk-style lullabies. His deep, mellow voice is accompanied by a children’s chorus and a variety of beautifully played instruments such as acoustic guitar, fiddle, tambourine, dancing shoes, marimba, keyboard, tenor sax, trumpet, trombone, cello, violin, and banjo. In the title song, all the library books dance the “Library Boogie” at night. Goldilocks and the Three Bears make an appearance in “Just Right.” Sally tames a mean, destructive dragon in “Sally and the Dragon.” “Two Moms” discusses different kinds of families. “Bally Roo” and “The Elephant’s Lullaby” are both lullabies. Vegetables are extolled in “Rabbit Habit.” “Honeybee” gives basic information about bees… Knight’s excellent album will be a welcome addition to any library’s music collection. – Beverly Bixler, San Antonio Public Library, TX
