Fancy you commenting on the style of dress worn by the internationally famous exponent of the banjo, Tapis d'Orient ("Silver fingers from the East")! Being of Turkish origin, he favours the dress worn by the traditional shopkeepers of the bazaar. On his head he wears the Turkish fez - not to be confused with the much taller Egyptian tarboosh that is shown in your picture. He also espouses a white collarless cotton shirt and white trousers, all finished off with a traditional moleskin waistcoat.
The impact on the European public, among whom he has a considerable following, is an expectation of exotic magic from the unknown and unknowable fabled lands of the East.
I believe Mr Cooper's intention of combining a red tarboosh with a Western evening suit was to increase the level of absurdity for his comedy routine. A very different objective.

Ah, but I am just an ignorant northerner! It is good to see that Mr. Fingers of the East now resides in Richmond.

This is a great Morley tune and for those who would like to have a go, I have added the full score, including 2nd Banjo and piano part to the MUSIC LIBRARY so now you can view the score or even "Play along with Tapis" from the database!

Thank you Tony   Tapis,  for another great performance!

My pleasure, Effendi.

Well done, Tapis Agha; may you walk always on warm sands.

For those of you who are still wondering: another of Joe Morley's compositions on the theme of military parade-ground "break-dancing".  For the banjo player, the third part of this piece has a very bluegrass feel to it.
