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./ It's Jazz/

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.

About the Author:

Walter Dean Myers (1937 - 2014) was born in Martinsburg, West Virginia. He was one of the premier authors of books for children, and received numerous awards including the Michael L. Printz award and the Coretta Scott King Award.

Christopher Myers is a writer and fine artist, but he is best known for his award-winning picture books, such as the Caldecott and Coretta Scott King honor book Harlem, written by his father, and his own Black Cat, which also received a Coretta Scott King Honor Award. He lives and works in New York City.

From AudioFile:

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 Myerss 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.
