Jambalaya (Hal Leonard Student Piano Library Showcase Solo Level 5/Intermediate). By Eugenie R. Rocherolle and Eug. For Piano/Keyboard. Educational Piano Library. Intermediate. 16 pages. Published by Hal Leonard (HL.296712).
This portrait of old New Orleans captures the lively and beautiful moods of this great city in its most elegant light. Eugenie's touching tribute to the city of her childhood is especially meaningful in the aftermath of hurricane Katrina. Alternating between a jazzy, upbeat style and lyrical warmth, the piece ends with a celebratory reference to “O When the Saints Go Marching In.” Great recital fare.
