An ode to ducks, of course! Funny, catchy, good-humored Calypso in C minor. Cute use of trumpet mouthpiece "quacks." 16-bar solos scored for several players — a great vehicle for featuring a handful of soloists, but much more interesting than endless blues choruses. Meaty sax and trombone solis. Fun, funny ending. Great tune anywhere in a set.
