American Pep was originally published for band and orchestra, a fact for which this editor has not the slightest compunction in presenting this long overdue adaptation for recorder ensemble. The, dare it be said, pepped-up composition itself is a bright and breezy march one-step completely within the spirit of the rodeo horse and rider pair shown on the cover of the original sheet music. Its form is AABBCC with a 4-bar introduction and a 12-bar interlude between the C-strains whereby the A-strain is of 16 bars, the others are of 32 bars. The 1st tenor has the melodic line for the A-strains and the treble then takes over for the remainder. All-in-all, just the stuff to brighten up a dull day!
American Pep was published by Ted Browne Music Co., Chicago, Illinois, USA.
