Publisher's Summary:
I See the Rhythm is a unique visual and poetic introduction to the history of African-American music. Beginning with the roots of black music in Africa and continuing on to contemporary hip hop, "I See the Rhythm" takes young readers on a musical journey through time. They are invited to feel the rhythm of work songs on a Southern plantation, see the rhythm of jazz from a balcony in New Orleans, dance to the rhythm of swing at the Savoy Club in Harlem, and rejoice to the rhythm of gospel from a church pew on Sunday morning. Each stunning spread is an inspiring celebration of African-American music and the far-reaching impact it has had on the world. "An unusually lyrical meditation on African American history...(Wood's) sensuous style gives hard realities...a sweet dignity". -- Publishers Weekly Vivid paintings and poetic text trace the progression of black music from its traditional roots in Africa to contemporary hip hop.
