yes, the cd rabbit days and dumplings: family music from east asia by elena moon park and friends will be released later this month. while you’re waiting, you can read some early reviews and pre-order my favorite family music of the past several years at the following places: the dan zanes general store, itunes, amazon. i really can’t say enough about it but i will tell you that elena, the beloved fiddling trumpet player (or trumpet playing fiddler?) in the dan zanes and friends group, has made something that hasn’t been made before, something that i think will go a long way towards furthering our understanding and appreciation of east asian music. and it’s a jam for all ages! it’s festive, emotional, sometimes nutty, and very very musical. who could ask for more?
