Video: "Recess" - Justin Roberts


Justin Roberts has not been one of those artists who've ridden to kids music stardom on the tails of his videos -- he's only made a few, and while they're good, they tend to attract tens of thousands of views because of the quality of the songs.

From a pure video perspective, Roberts' brand new video for "Recess," the title-track from his award-winning album, this is probably my favorite of his.  That's mostly because the video -- directed by his sister Staci, name-checked in the song and showing off fancy disco moves of her own as the teacher -- very much captures the playfulness that Roberts and his Not Ready for Naptime Players brings to their live performances.  I fully expect to see some disco moves the next time I see them live.
