Jazz, winner of the first-ever Odyssey Award for Excellence in Audiobook Production from the 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 15 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 and music that reflects the heart and soul of the many styles of jazz in a glowing tribute to a truly American art form. Download and start listening now!

    " A Coretta Scott King honor book for illustration, Jazz is a picture book about the history of jazz music and the African American music experience. The illustrations are gorgeous, and the text features colorful lyrical poems. "

    " I was really stunned by the illustrations in this book; they are very beautiful and invoke a real jazz club feeling. The poems themselves are bright and lively and truly meant to be read out loud. This book would be perfect for introducing children to the themes and influences of jazz music. "

    " Jazz is a fun and informative picture book written about jazz music and the people associated with it. It is written in poetic verses and would be a great read-aloud. The illustrations are beautifully done. "
