is an early example of the fusion of ragtime and cakewalks and with its subtitle of Two Step and Hot Rag Swing
it gives notice to a future jazz and swing generation. The cakewalk itself is a jolly heavily syncopated affair in a basically AABBCC form with a 4-bar introduction and two 12- and 4-bar interludes between the AB and CB strains respectively. The strains are somewhat folksy and melodic which in this transcription for recorder ensembles allow the 1st tenor to display his/her virtuosity having the melody line from start to finish.
This piece was revived in the 1960s by the ragtime pianist Robert Ackerman.
A tempo of 76 crotchets/min. is suggested.
