Product Notes

'Road Trip' is the second award-winning children's CD from New Jersey-based singer/songwriter Rebecca Frezza. The diversity of the 14 new songs on this CD will appeal to children and parents alike. From the lilting Celtic feel of the opening track, 'Saturday,' to the hard-driving rock/pop of 'Drive A Car' and 'Road Trip,' the Jazz stylings of B3 and the gentle, classical feel of 'Beautiful Planet,' this album brings all these styles together in an accessible way and reaches out to children without patronizing them. The lush instrumentation is accompanied by accessible kid-friendly lyrics that inspire the imagination and musical creativity of the listener. This is not watered down 'pop' for kids, it is real music with the purpose of engaging the whole family in a participatory musical experience. From her early years, music was a significant part of Rebecca's life, in a family where everyone played an instrument and there was always music in the house. 'I remember my mother teaching me the harmony vocal to 'You Are My Sunshine' while sitting in the back seat of the car.' Growing up, Rebecca listened to everything from folk and blues to progressive rock, jazz and classical music. She studied theater and dance at the Boston Conservatory of Music, then at the Alvin Ailey school in New York, before working professionally in musical theater. After moving to Montclair, NJ and taking time off to have a family, Rebecca began a new career teaching music to young children with the nationally known 'Music Together' program. Encouraged by having several songs published through Music Together, and inspired by her own children and those in her classes, Rebecca began to write more. Her classroom environment provided a valuable opportunity to try out new material and get immediate feedback from the families, which motivated her to record the songs. It was through the local Music Together community of parents and teachers that Rebecca found producer/engineer/musician Chris Putnam, and a wealth of other talented musicians, singers, and other willing contributors to the project.
