Album Review: “Swing Set” by Jazzy Ash

Are you looking for some kids’ music with a little swing? Look no further than LA based Jazzy Ash’s newest album, “Swing Set.” With roots deep in New Orleans musical culture, “Swing Set” is full of classic children’s folk tunes done with style. From “She’ll Be Coming Round the Mountain” to, as you would expect, “When the Saints Go Marching In,” Jazzy Ash and the Leaping Lizard band swing their toe tapping way through songs that every kid should learn, and every adult will enjoy hearing. As an added bonus, in homage to the great Ella Jenkins, there’s a sampling of children’s rhymes performed by kids interspersed throughout. “Swing Set” is geared towards the toddler and preschool crowd.
