Big Jeff & Friends
A big man in a brown hat singing songs of frozen peas and fire engines... a group of lively youngsters singing and dancing along... a series of animated crayon drawings bouncing and flying across the screen... an overzealous guitar player who keeps barging in... and a journey to a mystical mountaintop to seek the advice of the wisest saxophonist in the land. It all starts off as a typical Big Jeff children's concert, full of clever tunes and interactive fun. But before long, the joyful acoustic music is shattered by the frenzied electric guitar-playing of a rock-n-roller named Wild Bill. He's turned away as politely as possible, but he keeps coming back. Other friends join in to help Big Jeff play his original songs about helicopters, butterflies, cats and kazoos. Friends like Aaron, a singer with a great gift for harmony and a whiz on flute, harmonica, hand percussion and slide whistle. And Mark Rufino, a.k.a. The World's Happiest Bass Player, a long-time member of Big Jeff's Middle-Sized Band. Still, it seems like every time Big Jeff and Friends really get things going, Wild Bill bursts in on the scene... The only hope of getting the music back on track lies with a mysterious guru known only as the Jazzman. High atop Jazz Mountain, the way-out Jazzman holds court with his band, decked out in his suit, sunglasses and fez, speaking the language of Bop through his saxophone. Will the Jazzman be able to help solve the problem with Wild Bill? Will Big Jeff be able to understand anything the Jazzman is saying? Will Mark be able to stand on top of his huge bass without falling over? The answers to all these questions and more are here, on the Big Jeff and Friends DVD!
