It is no secret I'm a big fan of Lori Henriques, both of her music, as well as her videos.
Well, Henriques has a brand new album out today, her third solo kindie album. It's called How Great Can This Day Be, and I'm tickled pink (and green, and yellow, and, oh, you'll see) to offer you the world premiere of the album's title track.
Once again she's teamed with her brother Joel Henriques to produce a memorable music video to accompany her music. Appropriately for the jazzy, horn-accompanied pick-me-up of a song, Joel's stick puppets of brightly-colored shapes on simple backgrounds (referencing the album cover) look like they're enacting purely non-verbal storytelling from the '60s.
Lori Henriques is excited because her album is releasing the day that Sesame Street is celebrating its 45th anniversary. One of the best compliments I can pay to this video is that I think the song and visuals would have fit well on the show at just about any point over the past 45 years.
