Jessica Harper interprets some classic works of art in her latest children's recording, Hey, Picasso. A pleasing range of musical styles, including, jazz, pop, reggae, and folk, are featured on this likable album, as well as Jessica's silky-smooth voice. 

 

The songs on Hey, Picasso are lively and fun, including plenty of "musical conversations" between Jessica and children that young listeners fully enjoy. Although each track holds its own unique appeal, one of our favorites is "Stay Three"—a song that is sure to bring a smile to parents' faces. We all say that childhood passes too quickly, and this song explores the desire to freeze time. "This Starry Night" is a good example of the recording's dedication to art appreciation, featuring Jessica's personal interpretation of Van Gogh's classic work, "Starry Night".

 

Hey, Picasso is at once sophisticated and kid-friendly.
