Before She Was Harriet

Length:  8 Min 20 Sec
Release Date: 10/01/2018
Price: $30.95
Starred Review "The inspirational and determined life of Tubman is distilled into evocative vignettes reaching back to her childhood. So varied were her roles that the casting of multiple narrators not only adds texture to the production but helps reinforce that each role had its own set of challenges and its own place in her life. Each of the four narrators reads with a clear, convincing voice and employs tones befitting the role she portrays." Booklist

Starred Review"WHERE Y' AT? This companion to the award-winning Trombone Shorty (2015) offers another captivating look at the childhood of the celebrated contemporary jazz musician. With great fondness, Andrews (with co-author Bill Taylor) shows how the music and people of his beloved TremeĀ“ neighborhood shaped him as a bandleader. A brass band playing "When the Saints Go Marching In" kicks off the production, which is just as engaging and beautifully produced as the award-winning recording of the first title. Shorty loves playing tunes with the other boys making up the 5 0'Clock Band." BOOKLIST
