After a year of sold out shows, touring and collaboration Music with Mandy has released their debut album On the Sunny Side of the Street! This album highlights Mandy’s unique interpretation of jazz for kids, with kids. Along with Alberta jazz mainstays Kodi Hutchinson (bass), Ian Yule (drums) and Matt Morris (piano), Mandy has taken jazz standards and given them new life for a younger audience. This album features twelve talented young musicians from Calgary: Quinn Brosseau, Libby Code, Adrianna Kares, Elena Lonardelli, Olivia Mix, Danica Peters, Gabi Peters, Mitra Pooranalingam, Anja Roth, Carolyn Smart, Graham Smart and Payton Young who are all under the age of twelve.

 

Mandy understands the importance of a multi-dimensional experience, as is apparent in her live, interactive shows. She has drawn a colouring book to continue the engagement with the music when the children listen from home. Complete with pictures of each instrument on the record and fun animations for each title, Mandy has also included discussion questions for parents to explore with their children while listening to the music. Here are some samples pages from the colouring book.

What people are saying:

“All three songs, while elegantly played by the jazz trio, feature a certain silliness that make them perfect for children adaptations.”

-Eric Volmer of the Calgary Herald

“…. My 2 year old twins loved the show, talk about it often, and one of them is even calling herself “Mandy”! They say they want to “go to the theatre again and again and again”.”

– Cara (Calgary Mom)

“Mandy is an extremely talented, engaging, and entertaining Artist who makes Jazz accessible to all! Her shows have audience members of all ages up and out of their seats swinging & dancing to the classics…” -Laura Bicknell (Calgary Mom)

“…Great show, my son loved every minute of Mandy’s passion for jazz!” -Danielle Stephens (Edmonton Mom)
