Toy Poodles is yet another Cobb composition that, as an adaptation for recorder quintet, is to be performed just with tenors and basses and it will particularly endear itself to those recorder ensembles that love these instruments. The novelty one-step is in AABACC form with a 4-bar introduction whereby the AB- and C-strains are written in the recorder players' favourite major keys of Eb and Bb respectively. Perhaps another animal number in the ragtime zoo to go along with the likes of The Baboon Bounce (1913) or Potato-Bug Parade (1922).
Toy Poodles was published in Melody by Walter Jacobs, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
A tempo of 150 crotchets/min. is suggested.
