Sruffy’s Revenge is a (near) through composed composition which highlights disjunctive contrapuntal polyphony with just the slightest touch of Ozarkian flavor, hence the name Scruffy.

It begins with a slow introduction and jumps to a rollicking bounce tempo with interesting parts for both players. The end breaks loose in to a short shout section and ends with a soft closing phrase.

If you like Dixieland, you should enjoy playing this original.
