Benny Goodman & Teddy Wilson

From Holiday House

by Lesa Cline-Ransome and James E. Ransome

Taking The Stage As The First Black-and-White Jazz Band In History

Brought together by the love of playing jazz music, Teddy Wilson and Benny Goodman broke the color barrier in entertainment when they formed the Benny Goodman Trio with Gene Krupa. This lush and lyrical picture book tells the story of how two musical prodigies from very different backgrounds were brought together by their love of music, and helped create the jazz style known as swing. Written in exuberant verse paired with vibrant watercolor paintings, this expressive story explodes off the pages. (Grades 2-6)
