What's that sound? It's full of surprise and honesty; joy and sadness, strength and improvisation ... it's gotta be jazz! And it's America's music! Experience the history and development from New Orleans up the Mississippi to Saint Louis and Chicago and around the world.

Who knows what it might sound like in another hundred years? Available: Teacher Edition, Singer 20-Pak (in full color), Performance/Accompaniment CD, Classroom Kit (all components).
