Jalopy is a programmatic piece that uses all sorts of fun and engaging auxiliary percussion instruments to depict a run-down, rusty old automobile. In addition to these auxiliary instruments like a bike horn, flexatone, Acme siren, and police whistle, John Herndon features standard instruments like xylophone, glockenspiel, timpani, and modest set of basic drums. All of these instruments cohere brilliantly in an amusing, ragtimey experience for the performers and audience.

Herndon dedicated this piece to his grandfather Cleo, who "saw treasure where others saw trash and who could breathe new life into broken things."
