Maria Corte Maidagan + Ann Ingalls

Maria Corte Maidagan teamed up with author Ann Ingalls to create a walk through the Jazz ages alphabet book.

The book covers all aspects of Jazz in America from “axe” to “zoot suit”, including ” be-bopping, lyrical introductions to key jazz figures, musical terms, and a glossary of jazz slang.”

Maria’s style was the perfect fit for the subject matter and you’ll find yourself snapping your fingers and tapping your toe by just seeing her figures dance through the pages!




You can buy the book here.
