Summary
"Ever since she was a young girl, Lil Hardin played music with a beat. She jammed at home, at church, and even at her first job in a music store. At a time when women's only place in jazz was at a microphone, Lil earned a spot playing piano in Chicago's hottest band. She went on to fame as a bandleader and composer and 'swung' with many of the greatest early jazz musicians, including husband Louis Armstrong. Award-winning author Mara Rockliff and acclaimed illustrator Michele Wood brilliantly capture the rhythms and passions of 'Hot Miss Lil' Hardin, a jazz pioneer and legend whose story and music need to be heard!"--Dust jacket
