Little Melba and Her Big Trombone

By Midwest Book Review

"Little Melba and Her Big Trombone" is a magnificent illustrated biography of famed jazzwoman trombonist Melba Liston (1926-1999). Action-filled portraits of joyous, dancing black people roll ebulliently out from the pages, while little Melba grows and learns to play the jazzy music she loves on her trombone.
