About the Album

Nursery rhymes have never swung as hard as they do on this new recording from the Doug Beavers Rovira Jazz Orchestra. With dynamic arrangements, vocals by Matt Catingub and Linda Harmon, and a top-fight band of San Francisco and Los Angeles-based musicians, this recording will appeal to young and old alike. Jazz Baby! was the brainchild of a Bay Area couple who wanted better music for their new baby that they too could enjoy. Composer/arranger/trombonist Doug Beavers Rovira ran with the idea, taking his band & arrangements into Skywalker Ranch with the multi-Grammy winning engineer Leslie Ann Jones, for a tight and exciting set of music. Doug is a long-time member of Eddie Palmieri's band who's also appeared with Rosemary Clooney, Giovanni Hildago and the Mingus Big Band.
