Martin grabs the attention of kids and grown-ups simultaneously with his selection of original, traditional and contemporary songs. Songs that tell stories, participation and sing-along songs, songs which require only a simple suggestion from the audience to spring into creative and laugh-out-loud action! Add a healthy dose of lively swing and jazz standards sparklingly presented, complete with outstanding scat singing, and a few classic rhythm-n-rhyme stories learned from his Grandmother and Martin has a multi-generational audience in the palm of his gentle hands!
A reviewer from Children's Music Network remarks about the family CD, MockingBird: "Martin Swinger's rhythms are wonderfully dance-able, and his lyrics are honest and joyful. Kids will love his straightforward delivery, adults will love his ability to transport any listener back to his or her own childhood. Adults be warned: you will be playing this CD for yourself long after the kids have gone to bed!”
