Thanks to kid’s culture afficionado Matthew Siden at Nugget Island for his well-considered and glowing review of Coal Train Railroad!  We think an awful lot of his work, as well.  Head over to Nugget Island for the full review and much more. Though it’s hard to choose, one nugget for you:

“The album also swings, toots, jams and riffs through subjects like the joy of juice, sharing and listening. This project is truly a delight and unique in its execution. These are real musicians, playing real instruments and not a jazz-lite effort pandering to kids. An effort like Coal Train Railroad is sure to inspire future jazz lovers and make them aware of other genres at an early, impressionable age. In the meantime, I hope this album continues to build the audience it so deserves.”

Us too- working on it!
