How Jelly Roll Morton Invented JazzBook - 2015
In this unusual and inventive picture book that riffs on the language and rhythms of old New Orleans, noted picture book biographer Jonah Winter ( Dizzy , Frida , You Never Heard of Sandy Koufax? ) turns his focus to one of America's early jazz heroes in this perfectly pitched book about Jelly Roll Morton.
Gorgeously illustrated by fine artist Keith Mallett, a newcomer to picture books, this biography will transport readers young and old to the musical, magical streets of New Orleans at the turn of the 20th century.
