Scott (guitar), Baby Dodds (drums), Gerald Reeves (trombone), Stump Evans (alto sax), Quinn Wilson (tuba), Lew LeMar (effects). Timing break down, chorus by chorus 00:00 No introduction, Morton and the cornet and drums jump right into the first chorus. 00:37 Morton and the band continue with a syncopated rhythm which is a bit bouncy, but consistent. Sounds to me like a circus theme. 01:39 The band switches from percussive rhythm keeping to what seems like more of an improv session- all of the instruments are participating at this time- tuba is prominent and acts like a leader of the band. 02:23 Morton has a piano solo, trumpet, sax, what sounds like hand symbols, and the tuba are distinct on this track. The rhythm stays pretty consistent throughout the song except for

My personal reaction I personally think that his marriage of musical styles gives jazz a great reputation, and a bit more palatable for a wide range of listeners. This piece does get a little repetitive toward the end to be honest, and it’s probably the best thing that it’s only 3 ½ minutes long. I do appreciate the tuba, because it’s one instrument that I rarely hear in music that I regularly listen to. This piece is a bit jumpy, but hip and fun and something that would be fun to have on while washing dishes or cleaning the house. It has a nice energy to it.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
