Tsegué-Maryam Guèbrou was educated in Europe. She played violin (under the tutelage of Polish émigré Alexander Kontorowicz). She took up her piano studies while in the convent and teaching at an orphanage. Her first recordings - two LPs - were issued in 1963, when she was 40. The first nine cuts here come from these two albums. There are three other tracks here from an album Guèbrou recorded in 1970 while in Jerusalem on pilgrimage. These, "Golgatha," "The Jordan River Song," and "The Garden of Gethesemanie," are among the strongest works here. Even as they engage classical themes, especially on "Golgatha," the early jazz of Fats Waller and Jelly Roll Morton is whispered into the body of these compositions. The final four cuts here come from an album issued in 1996 while she was living in the convent. These four pieces are evidence of the complete realization of her craft.

Emahoy Tsegue-Mariam Gebrou. It’s off-kilter piano jazz that’s both odd and stunningly beautiful, and I’ve gone back to it time and time again when I’m writing. It’s got a propulsive beat that’s great to time your keystrokes to, and it’s always able to spark creativity in me, for whatever reason. Emahoy Tsegue-Maryam Guebrou - The Homeless Wanderer.
