Evaluation comments from our NAPPA Awards Music Judge:
“Kindie music fans won’t want to miss out on Little Miss Ann’s latest album. On 28 Days, the award-winning Chicago-based musician swings easily between musical styles and moods. Those who like to rock will dig the jangly “Another Garden” and the slightly psychedelic “Marshmallow Man.” Want a fiddle tune? “Going Down The Road” is a fiddle-fueled animal song that’s about getting along with other creatures (and humans). A folky flavor also surfaces the very good “Good Luck,” which comes out of the sea shanty tradition, as well as the title track, which gives a modern twist (and hopeful message) to the work song. Things turn playful on “Mojo” (akin to a quiet distant cousin to “Pop Goes The Weasel”) and the merry action song “Tuba.” 28 Days’ last two tunes end the album in a sweet and lovely fashion. “I’m just happy to have you here” is the heartfelt refrain in “Bright Winter Day.” While “Stars On The Island” has a Christmastime setting, the song really gives Little Miss Ann the opportunity to sing about her Filipino heritage. Providing musical support on this excellent album are a number of children’s music stars (including Suzi Shelton, Elena Moon Park, Anna Jacobson, Francis England, Mil’s Trills, and Tommy Soulati Shepherd & Tommy T3PO Shepherd from the Alphabet Rockers); however, it is Little Miss Ann who shines the brightest on 28 Days.”
