Ups 'N Downs
Playful, warm and loving, this music conveys the wonder of youth. The tracks were originally created by a grandmother's (Mummu) love for her first grandchild, so he could hear her play the piano, and soon they became popular with friends and family and enjoyed by young and old. Truly a gift, as the music was improvised spontaneously, by thinking of the fascinations and feelings of this young toddler growing up, wheeling around the 'buzz' of city life, in a stroller, thrilled by the sounds of sirens ('peeboo') and construction vehicles. This CD has been used with great reviews in classrooms as background music to silent reading, as well as soundtracks for videos and wedding slideshows. Recorded on a 1985 Kawai and on her grandfather's 1930 player piano with all it's clicks and clunks. Recorded and published by Neva in her living room. 100% Canadian made.
