Grammy Award Winning Dad & Musically Gifted Mom

Offer NEW Jazz Lullaby CD for Families



Frustrated by the lack of baby music that lulls a little one to sleep and, at the same time, won’t drive parents nuts, Phil and Tiffany Davis have developed a ‘sleep-time solution’ that the whole family can enjoy. Classic Jazz Lullabies: Volume 1 debuts this week and was developed by Grammy award-winning Producer, Phil Davis, and his multi-talented wife, Tiffany Davis. The CD features traditional songs like “Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep,” “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star,” and “Somewhere Over The Rainbow,” but while the words are familiar the upbeat tunes and rhythmic beats will forever change the melodies that have lived in our heads for generations. The birth of the project coincided with the birth of Phil and Tiffany’s third child when Tiffany went shopping for new baby music. “I found myself asking, ‘Why isn't there any music that is jazz-based? Where is the variety?’” Tiffany recalls on one shopping trip at a popular baby store. “Then God said, ‘You do it. Make the music you are looking for.’"



Classic Jazz Lullabies: Volume 1 is a musical journey like none you have ever experienced. The concept behind Classic Jazz Lullabies is to introduce to the world a traditional lullaby with a jazz interpretation. The unique nature of jazz lends itself to a myriad of voices, colors and sounds. Applying the jazz tradition to lullabies allows the listener to blend the aforementioned elements to “paint their own pictures” while nurturing a spirit of comfort and relaxation. “We see this as something parents can incorporate into their bedtime routine or use it themselves as a relaxation tool while reminiscing about their childhood,” say Phil Davis.



As parents of three children, Phil and Tiffany have experienced how music provides a way for them to bond with their children. “Our kids love it,” they say. “We incorporated their voices in one of the tracks ‘Man in the Moon.’ Joanna, our 2 year old, sings along on most of the songs at bedtime.”



Studies show and psychologists agree there is a strong link between music and early cognitive development. Music can also build language skills and provide a solid foundation for early learning. Phil and Tiffany have surrounded their children with music since they were in the womb. Classic Jazz Lullabies: Volume 1 is their way of sharing their creative learning tool with other parents. “We’ve always tried to expose our children to activities that allow them to grow and flourish. Music has facilitated that exposure.”
