Sam Fox Trot was dedicated to Irving C. Perkins. The title is obviously a pun on the publisher's name and the "joke" is continued on the front cover of the original sheet music which shows a red fox-trotting fox, no doubt named Sam, in an upright dancer's pose facing the viewer with a leery grin. As to the fox-trot itself, it is a cheerful ragged piece in AABBACC with a 4-bar introduction and a 16-bar interlude between the A- and C-strains whereby the A B- and C-strains are written in the major keys of C and F respectively. In this transcription for recorder quintet the 1st tenor has all the melodies the only difficulty being a very high G in bar 4 where over-blowing skills are called for. Just the piece for a recorder fox-trot evening!
