This is the third installment of the musical collections celebrating African American historical figures. Chronicling the lives and achievements of four famous African American musicians, this collection contains songs that may be used individually or performed together with the rhyming script, creating a mini-musical. Along with reproducible parts, there are learning activities and games for each musician, and with the rhyming narratives that precede each song, memorizing facts becomes a snap! The songs are short, and reflect the style of each musician: Scott Joplin · W.C. Handy · Duke Ellington · Ella Fitzgerald. Choreography by Greg Gilpin is also included. Soundclip is an excerpt of some of the songs in the collection.

"I stumbled onto your web site by looking for a specific type of classical guitar string, which you carried. I ordered them yesterday and they arrived just an hour ago, about 24 hours after I placed the order! What fantastic service -- and your prices are very good. I play several string instruments and I will buy all my strings (and other supplies) from you in the future. Thanks for the great work."
