Sumthin Doin celebrates the all American dice game of shooting craps as can be seen from the cover of the original sheet music which is dominated by a huge hand throwing a walking stick i.e. seven spots with a pair of dice. The march itself is a bright, tinkling affair in the "classic" form of AABBACCDD with a 4-bar introduction whereby the AB- and CD-strains are written in the recorder player's favourite flatted keys of Eb- and Ab-major respectively. This is a lovely ensemble piece where all voices have their say.
Sumthin Doin was published by Automusic Perforating Co., New York, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
