ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
On February 11, 2006, Trout played a concert at the Donald Reynolds Performance Hall in Conway, Arkansas to a full house of great people who came in from six states, braving snow and bad weather just to be at the show. It would have been so lonely in that big auditorium without you! Thanks to the whole staff and crew at Arkansas Educational Television Network (AETN). Support for AETN Presents: Front Row with Trout Fishing in America is provided, in part, by the Arkansas Arts Council, an agency of the Department of Arkansas Heritage, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

REVIEWS:

LA DAILY NEWS
In the 30 years that Trout Fishing in America has been making children's music, bassist Keith Grimwood says one question always comes up: 'What is the stupidest song you guys have ever written?' Turns out it's 'Sailing,' a clever little sea chanty that's big on wordplay. From a 'dumb-floundered' pirate to 'marooned' sailors aboard colliding cargo ships hauling red and brown paint, 'Sailing' is just one of 15 songs featured on the thunderous concert CD from the smart, musically sophisticated duo of Grimwood and guitarist Ezra Idlet.
Their collaboration on 'My Best Day' is not to be missed. Recorded before a live audience in Arkansas earlier this year, the album is steeped in the acoustic folk tradition. At the same time, it expands into the realms of straight-ahead rock, boogie-woogie and Professor Longhair-style 'Day Care Blues.'
The album won't be available until Sept. 12, but Trout Fishing in America will be performing at the Getty Center in Los Angeles as part of the free Central Garden Concerts for Kids from 4 to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

OUR KID CRITIC PICKS THE PLATTERS THAT MATTER by Charlie Heller
Trout Fishing in America - 'My Best Day' Trout Fishing in America's new live album could be described as something akin to the Allman Brothers Band for kids, minus the lengthy jams, and with slightly younger audience participation - like on 'Simon Says' (you can guess how that song goes). The duo mixes humor into their songwriting and inspires the crowd of fans, who are very energetic for their age. Inspired by everything from an ice-cream man who would 'fill the cup all the way to the bottom' ('Fill It Up'), to the similarities between playing at a day-care center and a prison ('Day Care Blues'), the goofy lyrics are a main selling point for Trout. The whole thing is classic kids' music, but the kind that can also make adults boogie and laugh.

Entertainment Weekly

The Grammy-nominated pair haven't lost their zany inner child.
TFIA's popular folk duo of Ezra Idlet and Keith Grimwood commemorate their 13th album with a career-spanning concert recording, casting plenty of fun kids' fare (like the wild Alien in My Nose and the woolly My Hair Had a Party Last Night) as well as some grown-up numbers (Alberta Postcard). New tunes, like the rockin' tale of embarrassment My Pants Fell Down, show the Grammy-nominated pair haven't lost their zany inner child.
