Here is a ragtime era novelty song that I think is fun.
The original sheet music for “Slidus Trombonus” included a subtitle “A Trombone Comedy” which will make sense when you listen. The song was composed by Mayhew Lester Lake.
Leo Zimmerman was, for many years, the first trombonist in John Philip Sousa’s band.
