It wasn’t soft. It wasn’t black. It wasn’t sweet. It wasn’t white. It was swing. 

Brought together by the love of playing jazz music, Teddy Wilson and Benny Goodman broke the color barrier in entertainment when they formed the Benny Goodman Trio with Gene Krupa. This lush and lyrical picture book tells the story of how two musical prodigies from very different backgrounds—one a young black boy growing up in Tuskegee, Alabama, the other the son of struggling Russian-Jewish immigrants from the west side of Chicago—were brought together by their love of music, and helped create the jazz style known as swing.
