About This Book
This smash-hit picture book of jazz music poems, from award-winning father-don team Walter Dean Myers and Christopher Myers, is now available in paperback.
There's a crazy syncopation
and it's tearing through the nation
and it's bringing sweet elation
to every single tune.
From bebop to New Orleans, from ragtime to boogie, and every style in between, this collection of Walter Dean Myers's energetic and engaging poems, accompanied by Christopher Myers's bright and exhilarating paintings, celebrates different styles of the American art form, jazz. Jazz takes readers on a musical journey from jazz's beginnings to the present day. Includes time line and jazz glossary.
