Album Review

A calming, diverse collection of lullabies from the world over. Assembly of the compilation is by violinist Tracy Silverman (Turtle Island String Quartet), a father of two. Silverman succeeded in capturing most lullabies performed by families. A smorgasbord of cultures is represented: Japan, Indonesia, Brazil, Ghana, Iceland, Israel, Russia, and more. Artists performing include Bobby McFerrin, George Winston, Eliot Fisk, Billy Taylor, and more.
