Dave Fry’s “Playground” is just that: a sonic playground complete with musical hopscotch, hoops, a sand box, jump ropes, and swings. With a crackerjack ensemble of great friends and studio players, “Playground” celebrates kids-based music traditions with jump rope rhymes, play songs, and curious ditties — all set to bluegrass, folk, rock ‘n’ roll, and R&B, and all with snappy arrangements and engaging performances.
