"A swinging invitation to get into the groove." --Kirkus Reviews

". . . a five-star performance from start to finish." --BookPage

"Welcome to Jazz is a perfect entree for a young person's journey into the wonders of jazz. Carolyn Sloan's insightfulness into the basics--rhythm, sound, improvisation--makes concepts clear while providing a fun and exciting adventure into the exploration of the art form. Highly recommended for children of all ages."
--Justin DiCiccio, jazz performer, composer, pedagogue, and Associate Dean/Chair Emeritus of The Manhattan School of Music's Jazz Arts Program
