Author(s): Wynton Marsalis
Internationally renowned jazz and classical musician Wynton Marsalis has created a wild, rhythmic jazz-focused ABC filled with poems, opening with Louis Armstrong, moving onto the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, and Ornette Colman, and ending with Dizzy Gillespie. From free verse for Charles Mingus, a short, sweet haiku for Thelonius Monk, to Sarah Vaughan's sonnet, there's a stunning smorgasbord of poetry, jazz, and art exploding from the page. A wonderful, crazy introduction to the ABC's of jazz for everyone. With gorgeous, affecting art by Paul Rogers.
