From School Library Journal:
Grade 2–4—This brief biography spans Marsalis's life, from his childhood growing up in a house full of music to his adult years as a Grammy-winning performer. Most students will relate to the musician's early reluctance to practice his instrument in favor of playing with his friends. His work with young people throughout the world with regard to music education and his more recent efforts on behalf of New Orleans, his hometown, and the victims of Hurricane Katrina are both discussed. Details are few, and older readers may be left wanting more information about this important, influential figure. The color photographs add some visual interest to the fairly straightforward text, but a few are not directly related to the subject and may confuse younger students, despite the captions. Still, this is a useful addition for libraries looking to beef up their biography collection on more contemporary subjects.—Jody Kopple, Shady Hill School, Cambridge, MA
