These days we got an email from Tracy Edward, Salt Lake City Children's Network and we think that this should be published on the Chris Barber Website!

Good Morning Mr. Jackson, Ms. Wandfluh and Mr. Purser,


I just wanted to quickly say thank you! I'm a librarian running a fun jazz music history class for 7-13 year olds, and I thought you all might enjoy hearing that we were able to get some great use out of Chris Barber's jazz links list. We were even able to use some of this information for our most recent group project. Thanks so much for sharing.


One of our youngest, Amelia has also asked me if I could share the article where she initially became interested in jazz music with you all, "Musical Playgrounds for Kids: The History of Jazz Music" - I've listed it below if you'd like to review!


Initially I was a little hesitant to reach out,but I thought this could actually be a really fun addition for any other young aspiring musicians coming across your information, like Amelia! I wondered if you wouldn't mind adding this one to your list? I find a little encouragement goes a long way, and would love to show Amelia and the rest of the library group if you do choose to include it!


Thanks so much,

Tracy Edward
