Cleanin' Up in Georgia is a full-blooded cakewalk which charms with its "folksy" melodies and has all the hallmarks of a patrol i.e. the dynamics ranging through pp to ff as the patrol approaches and then from ff to ppp as the patrol passes and then retires. This transcription for recorder quintet is an all tenor/bass affair and a particular pleasure for the 1st tenor who has all the melodies from start to finish. Interestingly the cover of the original sheet music is adorned with one of the more tasteful American Tobacco Co. cakewalk advertisements, an improvement on that used for the first edition of Scott Joplin's Maple Leaf Rag (1899).
Cleanin' Up in Georgia was published by Willard Bryant, Detroit, Michigan, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
