Sweethearts of Rhythm is a 2009 book by Marilyn Nelson and illustrated by Jerry Pinkney. The International Sweethearts of Rhythm was the first integrated all women's band in the United States. During the 1940s the band featured some of the best female musicians of the day. They played swing and jazz on a national circuit that included the Apollo Theater in New York City, the Regal Theater in Chicago, and the Howard Theater in Washington, DC.

In the 1940s, as the world was at war, a remarkable jazz band performed on the American home front. This all-female band, originating from a boarding school in the heart of Mississippi, found its way to the most famous ballrooms in the country, offering solace during the hard years of the war. They dared to be an interracial group despite the cruelties of Jim Crow laws, and they dared to assert their talents though they were women in a ?man?s? profession. Told in thought-provoking poems and arresting images, this unusual look at our nation?s history is deep and inspiring.

Love the artwork...that's why I got it. Story leaves a little to be desired, as others have noted. Would have appreciated more documentary-style info.

My aunt got to see them when her husband was in the service in New York in World War 11, I had not realized that they were an all female international band composed of mostly black women, and women of different races which would darken their skins with make-up to appear black.
It is an eye opening book written in swing.

Gorgeous poems by Marilyn Nelson, told from the perspective of the instruments. Watercolor illustrations by Jerry Pinckney are magnificent.

I guess I was expecting more of a history but this is an art book with very slight text, nothing greatly informative. However, it would be a wonderful gift for a young girl who has shown any interest in jump jazz of the past, as it certainly reveals a slice of women's history in the swing band scene.

A book of impressionistic verse and dynamic illustration celebrating one of America's overlooked swing bands, the International Sweethearts of Rhythm. While it has the appearance of a book aimed at children the underlying research is substantive. The chronology and bibliography, although not exactingly accurate, are most welcome updates to the literature on this band. Young band musicians should find it inspirational. Jaded jazz historians might find it a useful point of departure.

Excellent book of poetry! My favorite poem is Improvisation - from the format of the text to the content - it is pretty neat!

This isn't a bad book really. It's just not what I expected. I was looking for history and this is poetry. The illustrations are cool.
The film was very good, but the book as always is much better and more informative.
