In the context of when it was composed, That Tangoing Turk with its alliterative title, conjures up an amusing mental picture in keeping with the composition itself. As an adaptation for recorder sextet, it is an all tenor/bass affair and here the bass voices are reminded not to overwhelm the tenors. Its form is ABAC with a 4-bar introduction whereby the AB- and C-strains are written in the major keys of F and Bb respectively. It may well go together as a companion to Cobb's That Hindu Rag (1910).
That Tangoing Turk was published in Cadenza by Walter Jacobs, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
