Andrews, Troy , Taylor, Bill

The 5 O'Clock Band

(2) K-3 Illustrated by Bryan Collier. In this companion to Trombone Shorty, Troy and his friends perform in a second line, a New Orleans musical tradition. One day, Troy is so engrossed in practicing his music that he forgets the time; he wanders his Tremé neighborhood searching for his band and finding treasures in his city's unique culture. Collier's rich, vibrant watercolor collages provide an intimate vantage point of the city.
