A Child’s Introduction to Jazz, by Cannonball Adderley

Every single thing about this is beautiful. A Child’s Introduction to Jazz by Cannonball Adderley 

(…but perfect for all ages.)

Highlighting “the major styles” it is educational, laid back, beautifully narrated, and features legendary jazz figures such as Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller, Jelly Roll Morton, Duke Ellington, Coleman Hawkins, Sidney Bechet, Thelonious Monk and Cannonball himself.
