Food and music spell good times, and a new release, Whatâs Eatinâ Yosi? captures the joy of both.
Pull up a chair and fill up on this bowlful of 16 musical surprises from Yosi, whose all-ages tunes have been acclaimed by the New York Times as âwhimsical and genre spanning.â
Yosi is building a national reputation as one of the most musically eclectic and talented writers of family music. His previous release, Under a Big Bright Yellow Umbrella (2004) won wide national acclaim and six national awards, including Dr. Toy, the National Parenting Publications (NAPPA), Childrenâs Music Web and iParenting Media. Yosiâs songs get regular airplay on Sirius Satellite Radioâs Kids channel, XM Satellite Radioâs XM Kids channel and many other kidsâ radio programs across the nation. Two other Yosi family CDs are available: Monkey Business and Little Kitty.
The rousing first number, âLetâs Get Cookinââ a Zydeco good-time tune inviting the whole family to cook together in the kitchen, sets the happy tone for the album. From there, Yosi explores a range of cuisines and musical themes, from the hard-driving rock and roll riffs of âChicken Noodle Soupâ and âChicken Gizzards and Collard Greensâ to the bouncy klezmer ode to âBulbes (Potatoes)â and the calypso strains of âChilly Chili.â Fellow dad-rocker Brady Rymer joins in for a version of Rymerâs song âFresh Brown Eggs,â and the whole family will sing along to the familiarly funny lines of âOn Top of Spaghetti,â humorously arranged to a punk/metal beat. Some songs remind listeners that food is not just for humans. A mini rock opera, âSchlurpknopfâ tells what young aliens eat to get bigger and stronger. Next, Yosiâs original ode, âSpaghetti Worms and Meatballs,â a barbershop quartet about a wildlife café where all kinds of animals dine, expresses his zany approach to food and eating (with a little reference to Arlo Guthrieâs Aliceâs Restaurant on the side). The New Orleans jazz style song, âI Just Love Youâ ends the disc on an especially sweet note.
The gustatory themes of Whatâs Eatinâ Yosi? were dished up from daily life in the Levin household. âWe all love to cook and to eat. My favorite thing to make is chili, and my wife makes the best spaghetti and meatballs Iâve ever tasted.â The four kids in the family inspired many of the song lyrics, particularly those dealing with âJust Dessertsâ and âCarmel Crunchies.â Yosiâs nine year old son Nikolaus, who is suspicious about foods he's never tried, is definitely wary of âChicken Gizzards and Collard Greens,â his dad notes.
Yosi was born in Israel, and his family moved to the United States when he was a boy. After a career as psychologist working with youth and families, he decided to embark on a full-time career as a musician a few years ago. He had been a member of a punk rock band,
the New Gods, when he was a student at Rutgers University, and had continued to play with friends. Now, this suburban father regularly performs more than 400 concerts a year, both solo and with his band, Yosi and the SuperDads. His fan base grows exponentially each year, causing a journalist to compare him to Bruce Springsteen. As Yosi remarks, âsome of the kids in the audience know my schedule better than I do!â
