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. Find out why original jazzers had interesting names like Dizzy, Satchmo, Lady Day, Jelly Roll and Yardbird! Jam-packed with jazz history and fun facts, this unique revue features an original theme song and 5 jazz classics in kid-friendly arrangements, narration for up to 50 or more speakers, riser choreography by John Jacobson and professionally-produced recordings in true jazz form! Extend learning further with “The Story of Jazz,” a spectacular full-color timeline and recorded history complete with narration and music excerpts of jazz standards spanning over a hundred years. Enjoy the sounds of Ragtime, Blues, Dixieland, Swing, Big Band, Bebop, and more! Jazz music is only a little over a hundred years old and it is always changing. 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). Duration: ca. 20 minutes. Suggested for grades 4-8.
