Bustling beautiful American piano Jeni Slotchiver – American Heritage

Bustling beautiful American piano Jeni Slotchiver – AMERICAN HERITAGE:  With the abundance of jazz and blues that slides into my mailbox every week, it’s sometimes easy to forget the bustling and beautiful American piano that much of our musical heritage comes from… I didn’t find live videos on the Jeni Slotchiver Topic channel, but you can listen to the entire album there, or simply click the image below…

…there is also a separate channel with some older performances if you SUBSCRIBE to Jeni’s channel on YouTube.

Don’t let words like “heritage” discourage you from diving deep into her boundless piano energy… her performance of Harry Thacker Burleigh’s 5:07 “Troubled Water” (based on “Wade In The Water”) is full-bodied and moving… this is one of the tunes I believe will be getting some HUGE amounts of airplay on all types of stations around the globe!

I’ll tell you right now, you’ve never heard a more invigorating performance of “Down By the Riverside” than Jeni gives you… she presents some very unique stylings with her keyboard, too.

Of the eighteen enchanting songs presented, I found the 6:40 opener, “Deep River“, to be my choice for personal favorite… Jeni’s piano covers all the bases… jazz, blues and even Tchaikovsky in one stunning performance of Margaret Bonds beautiful song!

I give Jeni a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98.  Get more information on the Zoho Music page for the release.      Rotcod Zzaj
