What Next! is yet another sonorous Cobb composition that, as an adaptation for recorder quintet, is to be performed just with tenors and basses and it will particularly endear itself to those recorder ensembles that love these instruments. The fox trot is in AABBACCC form with a 4-bar introduction and an 8-bar interlude preceding the final C-strain whereby the A-, B- and C-strains are written in the major keys of F, D and Bb respectively. Whether the title was inspired by the long awaited cessation of hostilities in 1918, the impending introduction of prohibition or as a swan song to the ragtime era is lost in history. Whatever, What Next! is, despite the used lower registers, a lively and cheerful piece quite adequate to optimistically introduce times of change.
What Next! was published in Melody by Walter Jacobs, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
A tempo of 150 crotchets/min. is suggested.
