Written by Suzanne Slade with illustrations by Stacy Innerst - Biography, Children's 9-12, Children's Nonfiction, Music
George Gershwin heard music all the time --- at home, at school, even on New York City’s busy streets. Classical, ragtime, blues and jazz --- George’s head was filled with a whole lot of razzmatazz! With rhythmic swirls of words and pictures, author Suzanne Slade and illustrator Stacy Innerst beautifully reveal just how brilliantly Gershwin combined various kinds of music to create his masterpiece, Rhapsody in Blue, a surprising and whirlwind composition of notes, sounds and one long wail of a clarinet. Includes author’s note, timeline and bibliography.
