Lucy Kalantari: Big Things

The album name sums it up and it is fair to say you can expect big things from this album. From lullabies to birthdays to gardening, this sweet round up is some of the best jazz music for kids around, with smooth vocals from a bygone era and upbeat jazzy fun. If you like this one, be sure and check out her previous album, Pockets Full of Joy, too. We’re not going to lie: we listen to both albums even when the kids aren’t around.
