Its roots reach deeply into the past, tapping insistently on the drums of Africa. Well watered with the tears and sweat of plantation slaves, it grows and evolves into ragtime, blues, gospel and, finally, emerges as the jazz of John Coltrane, Miles Davis and Billie Holiday. Acknowledging this strange fruit and its path to its present-day form is Baltimore native Carole Boston Weatherford, whose own heritage is dotted with intimate interludes of music and poetry. At the Enoch Pratt Free Library tomorrow, she'll engage young readers in a discussion and book-signing of her latest children's book, "The Sound That Jazz Makes."
