Razzazza Mazzazza is said to have been Pryor's biggest hit. Its title very much suggests the sounds associated with the trombone, the instrument upon which Pryor himself was a virtuoso. The piece itself is in AABBACCD form with a 4-bar introduction. In this adaptation for recorder, the A-strain comprises a neat dialogue between the treble and the other voices. The treble then takes a rest for the complete B-strains whereby the melody is handed over to the 1st tenor supported by the other tenors and basses all of whom have a bars of glory. The treble comes back for the contrasting C- and D-strains. The D-strain is scored fff and slow and broad clearly indicating a change of tempo and accent is intended, perhaps grandioso. All-in-all a great ensemble piece.
Razzazza Mazzazza was published by Carl Fischer Music Publisher, New York, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
