Notes & Reviews:

John Philip Sousa personified the comparative innocence and brash energy of America around the turn of the 20th Century. The Charlatan was second only to El Capitan in popularity, while the U.S. Field Artillery March is the official march of the United States Army. 'Keith Brion, one of the foremost authorities on the music of Sousa, has been building an extensive library of Sousa's music for Naxos since 1998... Sousa-lovers will want the whole series.' (Fanfare)

"Here is another excellent recordingAs always in Keith Brion’s Sousa march recordings, enthusiastic playing is always tasteful, never bombastic, and reserved for just a few satisfying moments. The rest of the time, subdued dynamic levels allow solos and countermelodies to come to the fore. The Royal Norwegian Navy Band sounds terrific and sings well, too." -American Record Guide

MusicWeb International
In the ninth volume in this fascinating and enjoyable series Naxos has made use of a different band whilst wisely retaining Keith Brion as conductor. The Royal Norwegian Navy Band yield nothing to their predecessors, the Royal Artillery Band, in terms of technical expertise, including their enthusiastic singing in the "Caisson Song" at the end of the US Field Artillery March. I was at times conscious of some lack of the gusto and vivacity that marked their predecessor's playing but I suspect that this is due to a somewhat less interesting choice of music.

... Forthright and mostly good-humored, Sousa's very American music has continued appeal even in our more cynical age, and Brion's conducting of the Royal Norwegian Navy Band makes it clear that it has international appeal as well.
