What the critics are saying about Bingo Songs for Children in English with Brazilian and Caribbean Rhythms…
Highly recommended for folks who have families, as well as for those who don't think they do, Bingo takes you back to those grammar school days when innocence ran through our veins everywhere we went". –Jim Santella AllAboutJazz.com
Baa, Baa Black Sheep is a gem! The old favorite gets a great vocal by Christy Baron, some rollicking sax work by Aaron Heick and a “Peanuts” style piano solo by Davidson" –JAZZREVIEW.COM
Happy Birthday closes BINGO with a fiery-hot samba parade that makes you want to celebrate." –ALLABOUTJAZZ.COM
This could bring more of the younger generation into the folds of jazz early on. Bravo!" –George Carroll eJazzNews.com
This is one of the best recordings for children that I have ever heard since Ella Jenkins and Pete Seeger were recording simple folk tunes." Roberta Zlokower RobertaontheArts.com
Roger Davidson's recorded works range from choral and symphonic pieces to tangos. As a pianist, he continually stretches himself, and keeps exploring the art of jazz piano. Most recently his Amor por el Tango (Soundbrush) has been hailed by Billboard as a “fine record with bold arrangements ... the Davidson originals show the composer’s uncanny feel for tango as well as his distinctive take on the genre.”With his Roger Davidson Trio that includes legendary Brazilian drummer Paulo Braga and reknowned bassist David Finck, he has produced several recordings including Rodgers in Rio, and a forthcoming album, Ten to Twelve. Classical compositions include Mandala and other Orchestral Recordings by Roger Davidson," conducted by Carl St.Clair and Kirk Trevor with soloists Richard Stoltzman and Jeffrey Silberschlag (MMC Recordings). Davidson has also produced Ancient Voyage, an album of improvised music for various instruments with oboeist Susan de Camp.
