King Pajama has a sort of funky-jazzy-bossa-nova type feel. The songs are very hip (you kind of want to snap your fingers along to the beat), the piano is classically cool, and Nina Zeitlin’s voice is rich and smokey.
All of the songs are original compositions. I love the song Some Pieces about how some things just don’t fit into neat categories like Pluto (is it a planet or not) or tomatoes (is it a fruit or a veggie) or, well, all of us!
My son loves What’s Going On? with its bouncy rhythm and silly animal sounds.
King Pajama say they want to “expose children to different musical styles, foster a love of music at a young age, and inspire conversations about music between children and parents.” Excellent!
