Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by James "D Train" Williams

Children Ages 4-6 • 12 mins. • Unabridged • © 2006

Some stories shared by parents and children have the power to be remembered long after the loved and repeated tellings or playings are over. THIS JAZZ MAN delights on several levels. The jazzy, snazzy illustrations of the legendary musicians—Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker, and six others—evoke each personality and his music. The images will capture young readers while the easy rhythm and familiar counting song based on “This Old Man” will begin their jazz education. The bonus for parents, or older young listeners, is the epilogue of biographies of each musician, complete with highlights of their fame, including names of songs. The music—drums, piano, sax, trumpet, and bass—is as much the star here as Williams’s narrative. Live Oak has added another winner to their Jazz series. R.F.W.
