From the Arthur Pryor Archives this is ramblin’, rollickin’ riverboat Ragtime! The title is a jokey play on the name Hannibal, Mo (Missouri), one of the busier, hot spots for riverboats that would ply the Mississippi River during the 19th century. Having been born not too far away in St. Joseph, Mo, it typifies the kind of music Pryor would have heard there and especially in Kansas City, Mo, when growing up. Because Canhanibalmo is far less technically difficult than most of his solos for trombone, this clever, light-hearted Rag makes the genius of Arthur Pryor’s writing accessible for young players for the first time — as well as serving as an excellent encore for advanced and professional players.
