Uncle Rufus' Cake Walk is a splendid cakewalk with melodies of a marked processional character whereby it is easy to imagine the dancers' exaggerated postures and capers together with flamboyant gestures which typified the said dance. The composition itself is straightforward enough being of AABBACCBBA form with a 6-bar introduction and written entirely in the key of F-major.
Uncle Rufus' Cake Walkwas published by Baltimore Music Co., Baltimore, Maryland, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
