Includes CD

'Marsalis On Music', the illustrated companion book-with-CD to Wynton Marsalis's groundbreaking television series, is the perfect introduction to the joy of music, both clasical and jazz, for families, young people, and music-hungry readers of all ages.
In chapters that correspond to the four one-hour programs in the series, and a listening guide and audio CD prepared exclusively for the book, Wynton Marsalis uses wonderfully appealing examples and analogies to communicate the fundamentals of music. Whether likening the rhythmic structures of music to playing basketball, teaching sonata form through a story about chasing a pet hamster through a shopping mall, or revealing the connections between classical music and jazz, 'Marsalis On Music' makes so-called "difficult" music vivid, immediately graspable, and most of all fun.
A perfect book for families and schools eager to give children a strong cultural foundation without boring them, or for anyone who has ever wanted to learn more about music.
