This book is about two men, Benny Goodman and Teddy Wilson, who made history in Jazz music by becoming the first black-and-white band. The story starts off with the artists individually; on how they grew up and learned to play their instruments. Then the story depicts how the artists came together to play on stage. A great book for those who love jazz/swing music and how it brought people together. ( )

Benny Goodman and Teddy Wilson is a biography book written by Kesa Cline- Ransome. This biography starts off telling you about each persons “story” separately. Finally, the book brings both men together and tells you about how they formed the Teddy Goodman Trio.

The significance of this biography is that the Two men broke the color barrier when they formed their band. These men couldn’t have been more different, but together they help formed what we call swing! ( )

This story was written beautifully, and you can really see the authors craft throughout this story. She starts it off with onomatopoeia, the sound of fireworks going off ("pop boom pop boom"). The story then proceeds to be one long sentence, page after page. To me, reading this story was like reading one big poem. Just like how music is poetic, I really liked how this story was poetic as well in a way. I also liked how the author bounces back and fourth between Benny and Teddy, and the illustrations just bring the text to life. ( )

Lesa Cline-Ransome focuses on the similarities of two great jazz musicians, despite one being black and the other white in the Jim Crow era. They both were trained musicians and loved to play since they were very young. They both were rose to the top of the of their respective circles and made it all the way to New York. In those times black and white musicians would jam and record together, but only behind closed doors and never on stage. When Teddy Wilson and Benny Goodman finally met they hit it off and when they played they "spoke the same language." They formed a trio together. When they decided to play together in front of an audience for the first time, they didn't do it to be brave or bold. They just did it, and the audiences loved it. Later they added the great Lionel Hampton on the vibraphone and became a legendary quartet.
The book concludes with more detailed biographies of the two musicians, a time line, and a brief history of other jazz greats.
The illustrations are bright and energetic and capture the essence of the story. ( )

Benny Goodman and Teddy Wilson became the first interracial jazz band to perform on stage together. This is a poetic story of how the two came together to make history. The book goes back and forth describing their childhoods and musical upbringing. Once they created the band, Goodman exclaimed, "We were thinking with the same brain." This book is beautifully illustrated, detailing the beginning of jazz and the lives of these great musicians. This book is suggested for all ages, as it is stated on the inside cover. The final pages give a timeline of the artists, as well as a focus on other jazz pioneers. This book is inspiring and historically accurate, I would recommend to anyone. ( )
