Ben's Trumpet (Paperback)

On Our Shelves Now
1 on hand, as of Nov 29 5:33am


The story of Ben is fiction, but it could be the story of more than one jazz musician who grew up in the twenties. Using the art-deco style of the period, Rachel Isadora not only captures the poignancy and yearning of a youthful talent, but in page after page of striking art seems to convey the very sound of music.
