The Wedding of Shimmie and Jazz is a happy song which puns away on the various music crazes of the day in which ragtime, jazz and blues are all covered. "Walking the dog" and "balling the Jack" are also referred to in this cheerful union. The centrepiece of the original sheet music shows a smiling "Gene Green" who may have been the song's first singer. The cover not only proclaims that you can't go wrong with any "Feist" song but further exhorts one to get a record for your talking machine and to get a roll for your piano player.
A tempo of 136 crotchets/min. is suggested.
The Wedding of Shimmie and Jazz was published by Leo Feist, New York, USA and a piano roll made.
This adaptation for recorder quintet is respectfully dedicated to Martina Rösing and Holger Mohrmann on the occasion of their marriage on 1st July, 2005.
