9780152053079: This Jazz Man

In this toe-tapping jazz tribute, the traditional "This Old Man" gets a swinging makeover, and some of the era's best musicians take center stage. The tuneful text and vibrant illustrations bop, slide, and shimmy across the page as Satchmo plays one, Bojangles plays two . . . right on down the line to Charles Mingus, who plays nine, plucking strings that sound "divine."
    
Easy on the ear and the eye, this playful introduction to nine jazz giants will teach children to count--and will give them every reason to get up and dance!
    
Includes a brief biography of each musician.

About the Author:

KAREN EHRHARDT makes her picture-book debut with This Jazz Man. She lives in La Honda, California.
R. G. ROTH is a freelance illustrator whose award-winning work has been displayed in New York City. He lives in Hudson, Ohio.

From AudioFile:

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.
