Duke Ellington's Nutcracker Suite ( hardcover with CD)
Author/Artist : by Anna Celenza, Don Tate (Illustrator)
Publisher : Charlesbridge Publishing, Inc.
Duke Ellington's Nutcracker Suite ( hardcover with CD)
Ripe with cool jazz lingo and upbeat musical descriptions, the story behind Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn's creative masterpiece unfolds. With help from their eclectic and wisecracking band members, Duke and Billy compose and record a jazz adaptation of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite. A CD recording of the Ellington/Strayhorn composition is included.
"Putting a jazzy spin on the holiday, Celenza tells the true story of how Duke Ellington recorded his rendition of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite. Tate’s mixed-media artwork keeps tempo with Celenza’s vibrant writing (“A little Vegas glitz appeared here and there.... Hollywood glamour mixed with the Harlem Renaissance as each dance tune fell into place”), incorporating piano keys, musical notation, swirling colors, and Nutcracker motifs spiced up with a big-band flavor. An upbeat Christmas book about breaking boundaries and experimenting with new ideas. Includes a recording of Ellington’s suite." Ages 6–9. --Publisher's Weekly
