Recorded in 1960, Cool school features twelve songs, some of which (When you wish upon a star, Baubles bangles and beads, Scarlet ribbons, Ding dong the witch is dead, Swinging on a star) can easily be found on albums and compilations aimed firmly at adult listeners, but they blend in well with the other songs here. Indeed, June seems to have deliberately selected songs that can be enjoyed by adults and children alike. There really isn't any song here that adults should feel embarrassed about listening to. With just four musicians, the Joe Castro quartet, supporting June's lovely voice, the music is simple but effective, never more so than on Swinging on a star. Bing Crosby had the original hit, later followed into the charts by Big Dee Irwin and Little Eva, but June's version is my favorite.
Recorded in 1961, Do re mi features tracks originally written (by Jule Styne, Betty Comden and Adolph Green) and recorded for the Broadway musical of the same name. Five of the tracks are instrumentals, which alternate with the vocal tracks, so there is less here for June's fans to get excited about. There are ten different musicians featured though they never all play on the same track. June's husband Bob Cooper led the musicians while playing tenor sax. None of the songs or instrumentals here are especially famous (maybe the best known is Make someone happy), but there's plenty of good music here. Understandably, I generally prefer the vocal tracks - after all, I bought the album to hear June - but the instrumentals are also enjoyable.
Though not the most essential among June's many excellent albums, there is a lot to like about these two albums, especially the children's album. If you are a committed June Christy fan, or if you are looking for quality children's music that adults can enjoy, buy this twofer.
I had apprehensions about "The Cool School" because I thought it was going to be a children's album. It is actually June Christy's most upbeat album and while about half the album has songs children might enjoy, the other half is just upbeat and joyful. My favorites are "Kee-Mo Ky-Mo," "Aren't You Glad You're You," and "Scarlet Ribbons (For Her Hair.)
"Do Re Mi" is also good, but June Christy only sings on half the songs, so I skip over the instrumentals.
This "two-fer" CD is essential for the June Christy fan and anybody else who loves great music.
