Description

"Weatherford's evocative poem traces Coltrane's influences simply and stunningly. Qualls's muted palette of rich hues suggests the smoky jazz moods he would create." --School Library Journal

"Even children who are unfamiliar with jazz in general and John Coltrane in particular may find their interest piqued." --Horn Book

"Will echo with contemporary children, who will recognize the music in their daily lives." --Booklist

"This is as much a subtle invitation for children to listen to their own worlds as it is a Coltrane biography." --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
