Music Fun Facts:
For a classroom project, involve children in making and playing washboards or other kitchen sink instruments. In addition, activities connected to Mardi Gras and New Orleans fit well with this song. In this song, wind instruments are improvising in unison over the instrumental sections. (If you haven't already discussed instrument families, now would be a good time to do so.) Unison group soloing is common in early jazz/Dixieland, but after the 1940s, it became less common. It evolved to individual solos in jazz, first in the Big Band Era and then in bebop and modern jazz. Children might enjoy listening to other Dixieland jazz, including recordings of the Original Dixieland Jazz Band and King Oliver.
