A rhythmic jazzy story in verse, Jazz Cats tells about the escapades of some real cool cats that know how to entertain. Their jazz combo plays together in the streets of New Orleans. From the blow of the clarinet and trumpet to the pluck of the fiddle base and beating the trash can drums, these Dixie, dancin’, jazz cats know how to have fun.
Vibrant illustrations highlight the details and bring these hip cats to life in such memorable surroundings as Preservation Hall, Café du Monde, and Jackson Square.
Experience the lively atmosphere, the easy-going people, and the rich heritage of the French Quarter, all from the perspective of a few swingin’ jazz cats. They are always ready for a party and are in the right town for just that.
