The Carus Breeze was proudly proclaimed by the publisher as the real fox trot. This is further underlined photos of professional dancers in dramatic poses on the cover of the original sheet music. The fox trot itself is a bright and, wait for it, breezy affair in AABBACCAB form with a 4-bar introduction written in the major key of Ab and Eb for the AB- and C-strains respectively. This composition has of course nothing at all to do with the same-named Roman Emperor but celebrates Emma Carus, Broadway and vaudeville artist who graces and predominates the aforementioned front cover.
The Carus Breeze was published by Leo Feist, New York, USA.
A tempo of 150 crotchets/min. is suggested.
