Originally written for the Linwood High School Brass Quintet, this work has also been performed by the Canterbury Quintet, Wellington Polytechnic Brass Quintet and the Auckland Air Force Band Brass Quintet. It comprises a single high-spirited movement, involving a brief parody of Irving Berlin's Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better, in a competitive encounter between the 2 trumpets.

The Christchuch Press review of Canterbury Quintet performance on May 22 1992 noted that this was, "a lively conversation between musicians...The offbeat harmony suited the occasion beautifully..." (Christchurch Press May 23 1992.)

Contents note
