Summaries and Reviews
Summary
John Coltrane's 'Giant Steps' comes to life when it is performed by a unique cast of characters, such as a snowflake and a box, yet as the structure of rhythm and timing gets lost, the narrator must step in to get everybody back on track so that the tune can be played correctly.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: You may be surprised
at the tricky music
a box,
a snowflake,
some raindrops,
and a kitten
can make.

Right before your eyes.
And on the pages
of this book.

There is someone
backstage
watching, encouraging
our performers
but keeping them
under control.

Why not
listen along?
