Composed in 1925 and was originally entitled "Queen of Spades". It was recorded in Chicago by Morton and “His Red Hot Peppers” in 1926. This recording has many features that are typical of the New Orleans style and was written for a line-up of trumpet, clarinet and trombone, piano, banjo, bass and drums. Morton practiced what he preached and managed to incorporate in one short piece an original work derived from multi-thematic ragtime structures, accompanied by a percussive "slapped" bass used to help keep time, trombone counter-melody tailgating, stomps, breaks, stoptime, backbeat, two-beat, four-beat, riffs, and rich variations of melody and dynamics of volume; all the elements of jazz that he understood so well.

“The end result, is a resounding success. This is not a commercial CD, this is education, passion and self belief written in the sleeve notes”

Richard Walker
British Trombone Society

“One of the all time great brass recordings OF ALL TIME”
