SILVER AWARD WINNER 2014 Parents' Choice Foundation Awards

WINNER BEST FAMILY FUN 2014 Tillywig Toy & Media Awards

Love Songs For My Baby has been submitted for the 57th Grammy Awards for Best Children's Album.


Award winning kids' musician Alex Mitnick, best known for his work with Alex & The Kaleidoscope Band, has been a dad for just over a year. As a teacher and entertainer of children for the last 15 years Alex could always appreciate the perspective of the child but now, as a parent, the journey has come full circle. From the early mornings to the sleepless nights, and all that unfolds in the first months of life, songs like Love Is All It Takes, Having A Party, and Music In My Heart, provide a joyful soundtrack to the amazing experience of becoming a parent.

"Love Songs For My Baby by Alex Mitnick and his multi-faceted Kaleidoscope Band, is filled with world-music infused rhythms on these 12 original songs. From the African-like call and response vocals of the opening "Oh My My, " to the friendly folk of "Feelin' Fine," and the Springsteen-ish balladry of "Morning Sun," Mitnick brings a gentle sense of storytelling to his work. Elsewhere, is the Soweto guitars and Latin rhythms of "Love is All It Takes," the John Sebastian-style easy going "Hey Hey Lyla," and the joyful reggae of "Music In My Heart (Miles Smiles)."

The over-all feeling of the CD is unapologetically positive and upbeat, as demonstrated by "Beatle-esque" "Having A Party," the quiet country-tinged tale of anticipating a parent's coming home from work on "Honey Pie," and the steel guitar sweetened song of the title track's hero "Baby." Tabla drums spice up the rhythms of the love song "So Deep," a Clapton-like guitar accents the light reggae of "Diamond," and the closing "In the Right Place" floats along a lovely pedal steel line.

Mitnick's melodic tenor continues to remind this reviewer of the joys of the Lovin' Spoonful, with shades of Paul Simon and Richard Shindell thrown in for good measure. He is obviously well acquainted with the music of Simon, and shows pleasing influence of Dire Straits and other rock bands, but he has managed to synthesize all of this into a very pleasing original sound. A lovely and gentle celebration of the joys of childhood (and parenting) will be a welcomed addition to your music library."

Track Name: So Deep (For Molly)
Early in the morning
before I opened my eyes
rain was pouring
I felt you by

I could hear you breathing
so I turned with a sigh
you were still sleeping
I got up and started to rise

Slowly the world was waking
and the trees were shaking
telling me what I already knew

How sweet a sound they're calling
and I went falling
so deep in love with you

Take me to the river
to the ocean so wide
where the sky meets the water
out into the edge of the horizon

And say to me
yeah tell me something good now
you set me free
and all I ever wanted I've found

Slowly the sun was fading
and the waves were saying
something that I already knew

How sweet a sound they're calling
and I went falling
so deep in love with you
