THE 5 O'CLOCK BAND

by | Read by Dion Graham

Children Ages 6+ • 26 mins. • Unabridged • © 2018

Dion Graham's skilled narration and singing, along with lively music and vibrant sounds of the city, transport listeners to the neighborhood of Tremé in New Orleans. A young Trombone Shorty ponders what it takes to be a good bandleader of his 5 O'Clock Band. Graham creates a high and youthful voice for Shorty. Listeners will discover valuable universal messages as Shorty seeks support from mentors in his community. Tuba Tremé's booming voice intones the importance of honoring tradition, while a sweet-voiced Queen Lola proclaims we must love the work we do. The elaborately dressed Big Chief sings proudly and describes the dedication it takes to lead the Mardi Gras Indians. A live performance by Trombone Shorty and notes from the author and illustrator complete the production. E.E.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2019]
