Review:
Leslie Bixler, who has made jazz CDs under her maiden name of Leslie Letven, here delivers Moon Food, a collection of thirteen original compositions written for children "and their grownups"; in styles that include folk, jazz, light reggae and Broadway-style tunes. All very catchy, gentle and refreshingly innocent, they range in subject matter from the sprightly "Love My Shadow," to a Ms. Bixler's moody ode to “Tarzan,” to a playful movement song in &ldquoThe Freeze,” set to a jazz fueled Bo Diddly rhythm. Famed actor (and occasional children's music maker) Dick Van Dyke guests on lead vocals on two songs: “I'm a Pirate” (sure to be a favorite among young Jack Sparrow fans) and the wonderfully over the top “Vance The Vacuum Cleaner.” The well-crafted CD is sure to become a “car ride” favorite.
