Barnes & https://www.tradebit.com wrote in its 6-10-05 "Pick of the Week" column:
"One of the best kids'' albums of 2005 -- or any year, for that matter -- My Daddy Is Scratchy brims with wit, wisdom, and a musical style that runs the gamut from Broadway to Steely Dan. Pssst, Mom! It''s a perfect Father''s Day gift."

Jamie Broza is back and better than ever. Giving fair play to dads, ''My Daddy is Scratchy'' follows on the heels of Broza''s first children''s recording, ''Bad Mood Mom (and other Good-Mood Songs),'' winner of the prestigious Parents'' Choice Foundation Gold Award and named one of the ten best children''s CDs of 2003 by Child magazine.

''My Daddy is Scratchy'' picks up where Jamie''s,''Bad Mood Mom'', left off, offering eleven originals that explore the things that really matter to kids: avoiding vegetables, enduring embarrassing parents (especially when they SING), refusing to go to school, wheedling a few more minutes before bed. Stylistically, ''My Daddy is Scratchy'' runs the gamut from rock to jazz to country, with one song, "Mommy is a Dynamo," sounding like a Hollywood musical-number from the 50''s.

According to the Los Angeles Times, "accomplished musician and TV, film and stage composer Jamie Broza nails the rewards and challenges of parenthood with resonant wisdom, empathy, and humor from both parents'' and kids'' points of view ... With an expert, creative touch, Broza''s tracks play like catchy numbers from a stage-worthy musical."
Kids love to hear other kids talk and sing - and there are lots of kids on ''My Daddy Is Scratchy''. Three of the songs are duets with children and another song is a duet Jamie sings with his own father - the well-known composer and conductor Elliot Lawrence. The CD also features the fabulous Nora York, a jazz singer par excellence who plays the role of mom.

Here are some comments about his last release:

"''Bad Mood Mom'' is melodic, memorable, and magical."
- Jamie Lee Curtis

"Raffi and the Pied Piper have nothing on Jamie Broza. His marvelous, buoyant music hits kids where they live. They''ll love it."
- Stan and Jan Berenstain

"''Bad Mood Mom'' puts me in a good mood! Feels like a show about growing up, with incredible music. Let''s take it to Broadway!"
- Marc Shaiman, Grammy Award-winning composer of the hit Broadway show, Hairspray, as well as numerous films, including A Few Good Men, South Park, and Sleepless in Seattle

Parents'' Choice Foundation Gold Award!!! Bad Mood Mom made Parents'' Choice''s list of the top 25 CD in the last 25 years.

"There is sneaky magic in singer-musician Jamie Broza''s brash, rock ''n roll, jazzy slice-of-life approach to parental and childhood challenges. He nails the first-grade swagger (''I''m Six'') as well as a kindergartener''s emotional highs and lows (''I am Five''). The two-year-old''s ''I''m-the-center-of-the-universe-and-I-say-''No!'' view of all he surveys (''I''m Terrible'') rings true, and so does a three-year-old''s need for the comforts of babyhood to ease the frustrations of a widening world (''Blanky, Piggie, Pacie''). Broza''s resonant through-line is clear-eyed, compassionate understanding, whatever the mood."
Lynne Heffley, Parents'' Choice Foundation, July 10, 2003

Child Magazine Best CD''s of the Year! "The songs... are really funny. They are all about being a kid from a kid''s point of view. This is the kind of music children and parents can enjoy together. It''s real." Child Magazine, December 2003

2003 NAPPA Honors Award!!!
"Four-time Emmy Award-winner Broza brings his songwriting chops and three-times-a-parent sensibilities and observations to 15 original and nicely produced tunes." John Wood, NAPPA reviewer, November 2003

"Long car trip ahead? Get moody! Looking for some new car tunes for the kids? Check out Bad Mood Mom 9we just love the title0 from Jamie Broza. This indie artist strikes a chord with great numbers like the bluesy "I''m Six" and the mea culpa of "It''s Complicated." About the life issues of a grade-schooler." Susan Avery, New York Magazine, August 2003

"Finally, musical tribute has been paid to those of us who, on occasion, find ourselves screaming at the top of our lungs when Junior stuffs cinnamon toast in the DVD player. This is a smart, catchy debut children''s CD ... a funny and completely winning CD that seems to understand everyone."
