Instrumental lullaby renditions of fifteen timeless songs performed by world class musicians on grand piano and double bass just for you and your baby (in utero and beyond) to share.

Jazz for Babies is a multi-award winning series of recorded music creatively produced to soothe, calm and engender a life-long love of music in babies and toddlers that parents can enjoy as well. It has established a unique place in the world of 'baby music' by abandoning the mass computer-produced, synthesized and mechanical sounding recordings (often referred to as muzak), mobile toys and dreaded music boxes in favor of using acoustic instruments performed by world class musicians. The albums are recorded live in the studio and feature passages of melodic improvisation, gentle group interplay and expert sound production, placing the JFB series in a class of its own for soothing music produced with babies, toddlers and their parents in mind. The production quality is so high that many adults purchase the JFB series purely for their own enjoyment.

Michael Janisch, a renowned bassist, producer, professor of music, record label owner (Whirlwind Recordings) and father, was inspired to create the series by an instinctive desire to expose his own children to high quality music from the earliest age. Not being happy with the music he found produced with babies and toddlers in mind on the market, he set about producing some himself.

'The Piano Album' features Steve Hamilton on grand piano and Michael Janisch on double bass.

The Jazz for Babies series has won the following industry awards:

'Album of the Year - Baby Music' in Creative Child Magazine
National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA) 'Honors Award' in the Music Category
A Parent's Choice Award for Audio
National Parenting Center 'Seal of Approval' for Children's Audio

Press Quotes

(4 stars) Lullabies performed on real instruments by real musicians to soothe and educate wombers to pre-schoolers...Lovely.

The Independent

Some of the most relaxing and comforting baby-music I have ever heard! This is music for babies that is not irritating or mindless, it's sophisticated and soothing and you will love listening to it as much as your little one. This is definitely giving babies the best possible musical start.

Mumzy Not (maternity site)

Some rather fabulous albums...very relaxing...some brilliant songs included and some of the versions are really emotive.


A series of tranquil albums showcasing ideal lullabies for the next generation.

The Sunday Times Culture Section ("Essential new releases")

Jazz For Babies makes the PERFECT baby shower gift or newborn present! Honestly the last thing new parents need is more bibs and baby booties that will hardly get used… Some of the calmest and most soothing baby music I have ever heard!
