What’s Baby Singin’  performed by  Himiko Kikuchi  (1980)
Composed by Himiko Kikuchi
From: Japan
Recommended by Festy [profile] on Wednesday 19th January 2005

Sublime bossa from Japan's Himiko Kikuchi. The sound of a soprano sax causes many to reach for the "off" switch (thanks Kenny G!), but Himiko has made it not only acceptable again, but almost hip (almost!). The song starts off with baby noises, before wordless, female vocals come in and introduce the memorable melody. It then moves into a suitably paced bossa rhythm. I have been listening to this track for a few years now (courtesy of Compost Record's "Glücklich IV" compilation), and I just can't tire of it. It's one of my all time favourites.


available on CD - Glüklich IV (Compost Records)

  27 Oct 05 ·LadyS: I totaly agree with you! What´s baby singin´catch my ears since the first time i´ve listened to it on "Glücklich IV". This sax "a la Kenny G" could be avoided and a trombone would sound better, but even so this almost little slip is very well maked up by the great solo rhodes and the super cool female vocal singing a la Flora Purim the gorgeous melody, that grap in in your ears instantaneously. A lovely, sweet and beautiful song that won´t never stop to play at my playlist. Classic!
