A jazzy and sophisticated rendition of the well known piano piece "chopsticks".
it is in three parts - bass and drums groove, main chopsticks melody, then a light piano solo in a style rememiscent of the New Orleans greats - Fats Domino and Professor Longhair.
Instruments: acoustic piano, bass, drums and bongos.
It would work well in a light, humourous scene.

In Spain as La Chocolatera, in the Netherlands as Vlooienmars (Flea March), in Belgium as Valse de Puce (Flea Waltz), in Russia as Sobachiy Val's (Собачий Вальс, Dog Waltz), in Poland as Kotlety (Cutlet), in Bulgaria as Koteshki Marsh (Cat March), in Hungary as Szamárinduló (Donkey March), and in Majorca as Polca de los Tontos (Fools' Polka). In Mexico it is called Los Changuitos (The Little Monkeys), in Finland Kissanpolkka (Cat's Polka) and in the Czech Republic "Prasečí valčík" (Pig Waltz). In China it is called "跳蚤圆舞曲" (Flea Waltz). In the United Kingdom, the melody is known as Chopsticks.
