Hot Air Rag, a one-off composition by F. A. Walker, is anything but hot air. It is in ABBCD form with a 4-bar introduction and a 4-bar interlude between the BB and C strains. The whole is in the flatted recorder players' loved keys of Eb- and Ab-major. The composition itself fairly breezes along with the contagious melodies being shared by the treble and the 1st tenor voices. One wishes that F. A. Walker had got round to composing a little more.
Hot Air Rag was published by The W.H. Willis Music Company, Cincinnati, Ohio, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
