Grandma Sparrow is the alter-ego of composer/improviser/vocalist/percussionist Joe Westerlund. Here he has assembled a darn good band and performs a rather warped set of “children’s” tunes, designed to both delight and disturb. A title like “The Pigmilk Candycane” gives you a good idea of what to expect. Modern classical fans might enjoy track 13, a twelve-tone lullaby.
