is a lovely, elegant and charming fox-trot that one could easily imagine the incomparable Castles, those dancers par excellence of yore, dancing to. Subtitled "a modulating rag" and with a tempo given as "moderato a la jazz" it was clearly up-to-date in meeting the tastes of its day. Its form is ABBACC with a 4-bar introduction and 4-bar interludes separating the BA- and CC-strains whereby it the AC- and B-strains are written in the keys of Bb and F respectively. Kee-to-Kee
is characterised by tied dotted eighths followed by sixteenths. In this adaptation for recorder sextet the melodic line is shared more-or-less equally by the treble and 1st tenor voices. The basses will enjoy the "walking" passages and all, including the dancers, will relish the stops in the interludes. A great ensemble piece!
In preparing this adaptation, the editor is exceedingly grateful to Peter Persoff for kindly providing access to his materials.
