, The Chinatown Rag
is an idiosyncratic "ethnic" rag in AABBCCB form with a 6-bar introduction, the whole being written in F-major. It is an instrumental version of the same named song, words by Jack Drislane, hence its subtitle as an intermezzo. Of medium difficulty, this piece will be enjoyed by those bass-loving recorder ensembles whereby the treble has the melodic line from start to finish. The cover of the original sheet music predictably shows a Chinatown scene which could be in any major city in the western world.
The Chinatown Rag
was published by the F. B. Haviland Publishing Co. Inc.
, New York, USAk.
A tempo of 150 crotchets/min. is suggested.
There is also a treble solo
version of this item.
