Double Bass Blues

(1) K-3 Illustrated by Rudy Gutierrez. After performing an "epic solo" at band practice, double-bass player Nic later joins his grandfather in the city and reprises his solo with his grandfather's band. Vibrant, dynamic illustrations accompany a text composed entirely of dialogue and sound effects. This book about a lot of things--music, determination, and the celebration of Black boyhood and family--nevertheless feels cohesive and effortless.
