Notes & Reviews:

John J. Pershing (1860-1948) was an officer in the United States Army and was the only living person to rise to the highest rank ever held in the Army: General of the Armies. He was also the founding father of The United States Army Band in 1922. A commemoration to this great man and his role with the United States Army Band, "Pershing's Own" contains many fantastic songs including Summon the Heroes, Close Harmony, and Dance of the Jesters. Each piece is beautifully performed by the Army Band, a band noted for its immense talent and showmanship, traits put to good use in honoring the great John J. Pershing. Now, "Pershing's Own" is being re-released at a special new price! Don't miss this opportunity to own a recording of some of the best wind band recordings available!
