Jazz Storytime 2: This Jazz Man
Here’s another Jazz Storytime! Kurt and Jodi perform the book This Jazz Man written by Karen Ehrhardt and illustrated by R.G. Roth. Grab your shaker or clap along to the tune of This Old Man. Shake on beats 2 and 4 because that’s what makes jazz swing!
Now listen to the jazz musicians, also called cats, featured in the book. There is a short video of each one below. Most of the musicians Karen Ehrhardt chose to include lived a long time ago, before it was common to record live performances, so there were few to choose from, but you can see the musicians playing in most. Also, she only chose men. Women play jazz, too!
Jazz Storytime 1: Jazz Baby
Hello, storytime families! I miss seeing you at the library. I wanted to share the story Jazz Baby from home because I know it’s a storytime favorite. I don’t have the book here, but I found the story online and my husband Kurt, a jazz bassist, accompanied me.
If you want to shake a shaker along, here are two you can make at home!
Tune in on Thursday mornings for Marlena’s storytime.
