Muze PNote Dan Zanes has certainly come a long way from those sepia-toned days in the '80s, when he fronted boozy alternative rockers the Del Fuegos. The new millennium found him trying to reconcile the seemingly disparate strands of family life (as a devoted father) and his artistic ambitions. He solved the conundrum by recording "family-friendly" albums in his basement and releasing them on his own label. These are clearly songs aimed at kids -- but they are well crafted enough to be equally enjoyable for adults. For this album, Zanes sought to undertake some themes that evoked the night, and, as usual, he enlisted a stellar cast of "friends" to help round out his muse. The result is a gorgeously reflective work for all ages. One listen to "Night Owl," which pits Zanes' gentle, rootsy vocals atop a languid country- blues acoustic figure, offers clear evidence of this music's broad appeal. Zanes, supported by Aimee Mann's guest vocals, even adds owl hoots for the kids -- yet the track is sturdy enough that it wouldn't be out of place on a Steve Earle album. Another highlight is a wildly original interpretation of Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World," with guests Lou Reed and the beatboxers/rappers of the Rub¡ Theater Company. Old punker John Doe (of X) even comes out for the kids, teaming up with Zanes on Woody Guthrie's "So Long (It's Been Good to Know You)." Dar Williams also pops up on a stirring, mystery-laden version of the traditional "Wild Mountain Thyme." Despite the homespun nature of these projects, major publications (Billboard, the New York Times) have been taking notice and offering raves. Night Time is clear evidence why. Zanes is onto something special with his non-patronizing, well-intended family tunes. It wouldn't be out of place to call this adult alternative music for kids. Paradoxical for sure, but this is good stuff for hip moms and dads to listen to when the kids aren't even around. ~ Erik Hage

Artist Overview

After becoming a father, Dan Zanes, former frontman of the 1980s college-rock act the Del Fuegos, embarked on a kid-friendly solo career, enlisting the help of fellow New York City musicians and famous friends such as Sheryl Crow and Roseanne Cash. Children's music clearly proved to be a good fit for Zanes, with the singer/guitarist issuing eight eclectic, folk-tinged albums within eight years, including 2006's Grammy-nominated CATCH THAT TRAIN! Unlike much kiddie-oriented fare, Zanes's laid-back, thoughtful tunes also easily appeal to adults, putting him in the company of fellow Brooklynites They Might Be Giants.
