Jazzin' the Chimes as a recorder trio is an arrangement of a banjo solo published in Jacob's Banjo Collection Vol. 3. Its form is AABBACCC with a 4-bar introduction and a 16-bar interlude preceding the final C-strain whereby the AB- and C-strains are written in the major keys of D and G respectively.
The melodies with their themes of chiming bells are arranged in close harmony between the treble and tenor voices for the A- and B-strains whereby in the C-strain, the bass too has his or her say. An amusing number and a something quite different in the repertoire for recorder trios.
Jazzin' the Chimes was published by Walter Jacobs, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
A tempo of 150 crotchets/min. is suggested.
