Publishers Weekly features This Jazz Man<>Publishers Weekly calls This Jazz Man
"a spirited, rhyming picture book.... Scatting Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong,
toe-tapping Bill "Bojangles" Robinson, and be-bopping Charlie "Bird" Parker
are just three of the talents who grace the stage. Even their bios...are lyrical"
—"Connecting Through the Web" by Alexis Burling, Children's Bookshelf, November 9, 2006
