Cracked Ice Rag is yet another Cobb rag that could well be performed just with tenors and basses and will particularly endear itself to those recorder ensembles that love these instruments that are armed with a full battery of basses. The composition is in AABBACC form with a 4-bar introduction whereby the AB- and C-strains are written in the major keys of F- and Bb respectively.
Another "food and drink" piece to go along with the likes of Canned Corn (1910) or, whimsically, Hang-Over Blues (1917). It is a fine romp of a rag, ideal for ice-breaking sub-cool audiences!
Cracked Ice Rag was published in Melody by Walter Jacobs, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
