More on Christopher Kale Jones’ “Blue Moo” Recording

Everyone has enjoyed reading Howard Tucker’s story about Christopher Kale Jones’ recording of “Singin’ in the Shower,” which is part of the “Blue Moo” CD creation by Sandra Boynton! So many JBB readers wanted to know more about how Chris became involved in such a fun, creative children’s project, so we asked him!

Here’s the story: Chris tells us that Sandra Boynton had already arranged to have a member of a popular pop band sing her song “Singin’ in the Shower.” Unfortunately, this artist called her two days before the proposed recording date, saying that he had a conflict and was needed elsewhere that day to perform his music. Well, Sandy had already booked the studio and there was no turning back. So, there she was, driving down the freeway, when she happens to see a poster for a little show called Jersey Boys “now playing at the Ahmanson Theater” (in downtown LA). She remembers that her song features a male falsetto in it’s final refrain and a lightbulb goes off! So, how did Chris get the gig?

“She tracks down my agent, and two days later I’m singing ‘Singin’ in the Shower” in a studio in the famed Capitol Records building,” Chris adds, “We do a little more than an hour-long session, and ‘Singin” is in the can, and I’m off to perform the evening show on a Wednesday night.”

Congratulations to Chris on this exciting project!

  1. This story is a testament to that old cliche, “Life’s most thrilling moments arrive unexpectedly.” It seems as if every day now, we’re hearing about another cast member being afforded a great opportunity stemming directly from recognition of his/her performance in “Jersey Boys.”

    Through pieces on the Blog, Chris and I have gotten to know each other a bit during the last six months. As a CPA (ala David Cace), I can “attest” that he’s cut from the same cloth as John Lloyd Young, Christian Hoff, and Jennifer Naimo—caring, gracious, humble, and of course talented. I am so happy for him.
