Jazz-Man

Children love to play with this fully crammed in, miniature song. In Carnegie Medal winning poet, Eleanor Farjeon, Britten had an expert lyricist to have fun with. A one-man-jazz-band walks the streets tooting, hooting, crashing and clanging.

If it’s ‘howling pandemonium’ that you’re after, look no further!
