Musician/composer Ted Jacobs is dedicated to presenting exquisite acoustic musical settings of the world’s most beloved poetry, and it is with tremendous pride that he announces his third studio CD, Back to the Garden, a collection of songs based on poems from Robert Louis Stevenson’s A Child’s Garden of Verses.
We rather enjoyed reviewing this wonderful music collaboration. Each song is an adventure and an experience waiting to be shared with it’s listener. Some songs are mellow and others you’ll probably find your toe tapping. When I heard the instruments in these songs put together into such a tune it brought to my mind an image of children parading around a pole with ribbons floating in the breeze, floral wreaths adorning the crown of their heads, skipping as they went along, hands clenching beautifully woven baskets filled with flowers. It totally opens ones imagination and brings out ones poetic side.
It’s hard to pick a favorite songs because they are all so well brought together. The melody brings the poems of Robert Louis Stevenson alive in such a way I’d not imagined before! Songs are sung by children as well as adults. It makes this a fun collection for both children and their parents. If you love acoustic tunes, rich lyrics, and songs that stir up creativity and imagination you’ll love “Back to the Garden”.
