Lindy is a most lively march two step with cheerful cakewalk characteristics. Its form is AABBACCBB with a 4-bar introduction and an 8-bar interlude between the CC and BB strains. The final BB-strain is scored to be taken slower in cakewalk time.
This particular Lindy has nothing at all to do with the famous Lindy Hop, a swing dance craze celebrating Col. Lindbergh that Spirit of St Louis hero, which became established some 30 years after this piece's composition.
Lindy was published by Whitney-Warner Publishing Co., Detroit, Michigan, USA.
A tempo of 90 crotchets/min. is suggested.
