Trebor Jay Tichenor considers A Cotton Patch to be one of the many fine local rags produced in Kansas City. It has an AABCCDDAB form with a 4-bar introduction, all the strains being as lively and "raggy" as one could wish. In this recorder adaptation the melodies are shared by the treble (AB), 1st tenor (CD) and bass (1st 8 bars of C) making it a splendid ensemble piece. There are also some pleasant touches such as the use of stop-time a la Scott Joplin in the B-strain to catch out the unwary. A fun piece indeed leaving one wishing that Tyler had left more such works behind.
A Cotton Patch was published by J.W. Jenkins' Sons Music Co., Kansas City, Missouri, USA.
A tempo of 90 crotchets/min. is suggested.
