In loving memory of
the victims of “Hurricane Katrina.”
A love letter to Nawlins,
to “Lady Day,” Billie Holiday.
For Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, Sandra Bland and too many more fallen angels.
We Shall Overcome.
 
Dedication :
 
In loving memory of the victims of “Hurricane Katrina.”

Song Notes :
 
“Almost a Waltz”
 
for Billie Holiday, for Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, for Sandra Bland … too many fallen angels
 
and the “tomb” of the “unknown civil rights soldiers.”
 
An Ironic “Out of Step” Mardi Gras Ballad
 
in the Key of Billie Holiday
with a little bit of “Mahalia” in the wings …
 
This Song is “Haunted” by :
 
Harlem
The Harlem Renaissance
Old Nawlins / New Orleans
Scott Joplin / Broken Pianos
Billie Holiday
Satchmo
Langston Hughes
 
and also it is “haunted” by :
 
Hurricane Katrina
New Orleans
The “Flood”
 
Trayvon
Tamir
Sandra Bland
 
The Rising Waters of “the Ninth” Ward float us into the song …
 
and
 
The Receding Waters from the 9th Ward float us out of the song and into the future …
