Description-
  • "Jazz," winner of the first-ever Odyssey Award for Excellence in Audiobook Production/American Library Association, features performances by jazz vocalists James "D-Train" Williams and Vaneese Thomas. The history of jazz is presented in a series of fifteen poems that are read and sung, against a backdrop of original music that sets the appropriate mood and tone for each of the varied pieces. The result is a celebration through poetry, art, and music that reflects the heart and soul of the many styles of jazz in a glowing tribute to a truly American art form.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Start with rhythm/ Start with the heart--so begins this collection of Walter Dean Myers poems, where listeners will find plenty of rhythm and plenty of heart. R&B artists James "D-Train" Williams and Vaneese Thomas read and sing the 17 poems--joyful tributes to jazz and bebop, to the piano and the slide trombone, to Louis Armstrong and New Orleans--with energy and verve, accompanied by a live jazz ensemble. The narration lifts the words off the page and asks them to dance, perfectly complementing Christopher Myers's gorgeous, colorful, kinetic illustrations. Listeners of all ages will feel truly immersed in the sounds of jazz music, and the accompanying introduction, glossary of jazz terms, and timeline of jazz history offer even more depth.
