Rock Paper Scissors is on Top 10 lists for 2010! Time Out New York Kids and Out With the Kids.
Rock Paper Scissors is a genuine party: 18 songs full of fun and mayhem, abetted by the notorious and raucous Felice Brothers. It is the polar opposite of Dean Jones' last solo CD, Napper’s Delight, a lullaby/chillout album, which was one of NPR’s Top Picks of 2007.
Rock Paper Scissors is just bursting with energy! Accordion, trombone, guitars, bottles and cans, car horns and bass harmonicas abound. The songs are populated by pirates, pocket-sized babies, snoring fathers, muddy kids, singing animals, and butterfingers. The one and only Uncle Rock sings the hilarious spaghetti western sounding "Roncando". Trombone and baritone sax fuel the quirky title song, and there's even a car horn solo on the old time jazz feeling "Butterfingers". There are even a couple of sweet and quiet songs, like "The Littlest Song", featuring Dean's 5 year old daughter Rylie.
You will find these songs getting stuck in your head, and I bet you'll have a darn good time singing and stomping along with this music.
