One of them is tall, one of them is small, two of them are girls!
Ralph Legnini (Little Ralph), likes cold ravioli for breakfast.
Ralph Carney (Big Ralph), after trimming his mutton chops, prefers a pile of ripe grapes for his first meal of the day.
Smaller Ralph can climb under the hood of a car.
Bigger Ralph heard there's something CALLED the hood of a car.
Both Ralphs love their families and love playing music.....hey, these guys ARE a lot alike!
Kt Legnini likes to take long afternoon naps; Abba Roland never sleeps.
Abba digs Radiohead; Kt sobs to sad bluegrass ballads.
Kt knows the words to every disco song; Abba knows correct chord inversions to Spiders From Mars! They listen to each other when they talk, and their feet fit into each other's shoes.
Ralph & Ralph did all the music for the acclaimed HBO kid's TV show Encyclopedia, which was produced by the folks at Sesame Street. They also collaborated on the pilot for a new Little Rascals TV show and other kid's projects. They were in the band Tin Huey together, and while Big Ralph was Tom Waits' horn player and musical director, Little Ralph worked in the studio for producers Nile Rodgers and Todd Rundgren. Their most recent collaboration is this very musical, funny and thoughtful CD for kids.
Abba Roland (a/k/a Abba Rage) is a singer / songwriter who did what David Bowie deemed the best cover version of one of his songs – Starman.
Kt Legnini (a/k/a Katie Taylor) is an artist, singer & performer from the 80's NYC cult band Konk, and later Volti & Dynamojo. She also performs with kid's music artist Uncle Rock as a member of Uncle Rock & The Playthings.
Inspired by their children they decided to make an album of kid's music for all ages.

- Todd Rundgren
