Catch That Train!

Performers Dan Zanes & Friends

Festival Five Records | May 16, 2006 | Compact Disc

Not yet rated | write a review
This is an Enhanced CD, which contains both regular audio tracks and multimedia computer files.
Additional personnel: Kronos Quartet, Nick Cave, Blind Boys Of Alabama.
By the time of this 2006 outing, former Del Fuegos frontman Dan Zanes was more renowned for his children's albums than for his regular pop/rock recordings. Like his fellow Brooklynites They Might Be Giants, Zanes has a knack for crafting whimsical tunes that are geared towards kids, but are equally enjoyable for parents, as revealed on the jangly title track and the breezy, laid-back "Summer Wind." Like his past releases for youngsters, Zanes invites a few guest stars aboard, including the Blind Boys of Alabama (the jubilant, inviting "Welcome Table"), Natalie Merchant (the lilting, rustic "Loch Lomond"), and, oddly enough, Nick Cave (the charming, waltz-like "Sweet Roseanna"). Dynamic and thoroughly entertaining, CATCH THAT TRAIN! is sure to please Zanes's fans of all ages and win over some new admirers as well.

Reviews

Rated out of 5 by from Winner of a Parents' Choice Gold Award Former Del Fuegos' lead singer Dan Zanes adds to his string of heart-happy family recordings with another idiosyncratic collection of irresistible songs in the folk tradition. Joined by his own young daughter, the Blind Boys of Alabama, the Kronos Quartet, Natalie Merchant and other stellar contributors, Zanes imagines a train ride where “in every car of the train there's music being made,” as well as laughter, jokes, day-dreaming, and above all, the warmth of human connection, the foundation of all of Zanes' work in the genre he has embraced with enthusiasm and integrity.
