Play, Louis, Play!: The True Story of a Boy and His Horn

Play, Louis, Play!: The True Story of a Boy and His Horn Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The childhood of Louis Armstrong was as fascinating as the great musician himself-and this chapter book biography tells it like never before. Play, Louis, Play! is written from the point of view of Louis' closest companion throughout his youth-his horn! In a jazz-inflected, exuberant voice, this unusual narrator tells it all, starting with the small New Orleans hock shop where little Louis bought his first trumpet for five hard-earned dollars.

As Louis goes from a street quartet to the marching band of the Colored Waif 's Home to the big sounds of New Orleans jazz clubs, author Muriel Harris Weinstein creates a moving portrait of the jazz legend. Includes a detailed author's note, glossary of jazz terms, and bibliography.

Synopsis:

* Named to the Texas Bluebonnet Master List* Louis Armstrong's horn has a voice of its own in this creative, energetic biography
