    Award Won:  Brain Child – Category:  Best Audio CD 2013

    Here’s what the Judges had to say:
    “Having some of the most beautiful songs ever recorded at your fingertips, arranged as soothing jazz lullabies, would strike most parents as a godsend. And it is. Calm and serene can be precious commodities in households with young children, and each of the songs on the five albums in this set evokes a similar feeling of utter relaxation. Acoustic instrumentation, crystal-clear harmonies and melodies, slow, soothing tempos, and song selection all play a part in this.

    The Piano Album consists solely of acoustic piano and double bass, while each of the other four albums (The Guitar Album, The Trumpet Album, The Saxophone Album, The Vibraphone Album) adds a single acoustic instrument to the piano and double bass. The 75 tunes range from pop songs like John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’ and the Jackson Five’s ‘I’ll be There’ to eternal standards such as ‘Body and Soul’ and ‘God Bless the Child’. What you put in your children’s ears will inform their musicality, creativity, and temperament for years to come. The music served up by Jazz For Babies takes that future into account while promoting a calm, satisfying atmosphere in the present.”

    Award Won:  10 Best Products – Category: Audio, plus Jazz for Babies named as one of their 100 Best Products across the juvenile industry for 2013.

    Here’s what the Judges had to say: “An array of slow and soothing renditions of the world’s most beautiful songs are offered as part of these five remarkable albums called Jazz for Babies. Those early sounds heard by baby create a bond that lasts a lifetime. When trying to calm a fussy baby, sleep-deprived moms or dads have turned to the smooth sounds of piano, guitar, trumpet and saxophone. In each of the albums, parents hear a familiar movie tune, the latest pop song, or a classic standard – instrumentally – without lyrics. It not only mellows baby, but also serves to calm and entertain mom or dad.”

    Award Won:  Honors – Category:  Music

    The official announcement will be in November. Here’s what they said about JFB:
    “With his Jazz for Babies CD series, Michael Janisch has come up with an ingenious idea for lullaby music. The CDs are stocked with gently-played acoustic renditions of well-known jazz tunes, American standards and pop hits. (like “Georgia On My Mind, “You Are My Sunshine” and “Isn’t She Lovely”) that are soothing for babies as well as frazzled parents. The series’ discs, which include individual albums focusing on guitar, trumpet, piano and saxophone instrumentals, are uniformly strong. The vibraphone CD, however, stands out slightly from the others.  Not only does the music convey a wonderful calming vibe, but it also spotlights an instrument that isn’t as heard as much nowadays as the others.” ~ NPPA Music Judge, Michael Berick
