Frustrated by the lack of baby music that lulls a little one to sleep and, at the same time, won’t drive parents nuts, Tiffany Graves-Davis and Phil Davis have developed a ‘sleep-time solution’ that the whole family can enjoy. Classic Jazz Lullabies: Volume 1 debuts this week and was developed by multi-talented Mom, Tiffany Graves-Davis and Grammy award-winning Producer, Phil Davis. The CD features traditional songs like “Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep,” “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star,” and “Somewhere Over The Rainbow,” but while the words are familiar the upbeat tunes and rhythmic beats will forever change the melodies that have lived in our heads for generations.
Classic Jazz Lullabies: Volume 1 is a musical journey like none you have ever experienced. The concept behind Classic Jazz Lullabies is to introduce to the world a traditional lullaby with a jazz interpretation. The unique nature of jazz lends itself to a myriad of voices, colors and sounds. Applying the jazz tradition to lullabies allows the listener to blend the aforementioned elements to “paint their own pictures” while nurturing a spirit of comfort and relaxation. “I see this as something parents can incorporate into their bedtime routine or use it themselves as a relaxation tool while reminiscing about their childhood,” says Tiffany.
“My kids love it,” Tiffany says. “We incorporated their voices in one of the tracks ‘Man in the Moon.’ Joanna, the youngest, sings along on most of the songs at bedtime.”
Studies show and psychologists agree there is a strong link between music and early cognitive development. Music can also build language skills and provide a solid foundation for early learning. Tiffany has surrounded her children with music since they were in the womb. Classic Jazz Lullabies: Volume 1 is this duos way of sharing a creative learning tool with other parents. “I’ve always tried to expose my children to activities that allow them to grow and flourish. Music has facilitated that exposure.”
