This is a fine rag indeed which has in recent years been recorded by Bob Darch. As a recorder adaptation it is a demanding work requiring the highest ensemble skills. In addition to the delights of having four and five flats, the descant has ornamental flourishes, the treble has a lovely long run of ornamented trios and all voices have their place in the sun as the melody runs up and down the scales. Thompson provided an optional ending. This adaptation reverses the option to take advantage of the great bass/contra bass.
