This brilliant march Blaze-Away!, still immensely popular in brass band circles, commemorated or cashed-in on the then current fascination with Teddy Roosevelt's charge up San Juan Hill during the Spanish-American war. The march quickly became popular with bands such as John Philip Sousa's and many circus bands as well. This recorder adaptation is quite demanding on the 1st bass, a whole series of high G's and A's being required (bars 21-29). If the result is too "squeaky" then quickly grabbing a tenor may be the answer or simply playing the passage an octave lower. This is a real fun piece!
A tempo of between 160 - 180 crotchets/min. is suggested. Blaze Away was published by Leo Feist, New York, USA.
This recorder adaptation is respectfully dedicated to Mr Michael Carlos of Strokestown, County Roscommon, Ireland.
