Putumayo Kids: New Orleans Playground

Though it’s been out for over ten years, we think no jazz for kids collection is complete without a mention of this classic compilation from Putumayo Kids. Full of danceable tracks including Fats Domino’s “Whole Lotta’ Lovin’” and Buckwheat Zydeco’s “Skip to My Blues” you can cue this one up again and again when you want that Mardi Gras vibe in your own living room.
