Red Moon was Humfeld's contribution to the Red Indian craze and was also, according to the cover of the original sheet music, a tremendous hit by the Musical Brown Brothers, a saxophone quintet. As for the music itself, it is a pleasant easy-going piece in march tempo. Its form is AABBACC with a 4-bar introduction and an unusual 11-bar interlude between the C-strains. The final C-strain is highly jazzed up and no doubt contributed the Brown Brothers' success.
Red Moon was published by Howard & Browne Music Co., St. Louis, Missouri, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
