This book is a great introduction to the world of music and art. At every turn of the page is a beautiful painting of some of Jazz's greatest legends, including Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, Ella Fitzgerald and more. These graphic-styled illustrations are complemented by rhyming text that bounces along to a jazz beat. The book concludes with a short biography of each of the artists featured. Kids hungry for more will be delighted by the accompanying CD, which tells about the history of Jazz, the characteristics of each instrument and also features the original song "Jazz on a Saturday Night."
