This album is the fourth in a series of concert band recordings honoring the lives and music of individuals who have made significant contributions to band repertoire and to music education. The Legacy of Robert Russell Bennett honors a man who achieved great fame as an arranger, but always considered his true calling to be a composer. Bennett arranged hundreds of Broadway and film scores and composed operas, symphonies, and concertos. Representing some of the finest musical talent in America, The United States Army Field Band is known around the world as "The Musical Ambassadors of the Army." The Legacy of Robert Russell Bennett features some of Bennett's greatest works including "1939 World's Fair: TNT Cocktail" and "Down to the Sea in Ships." Honoring the memory and innumerable musical contributions of Robert Russell Bennett, this album is both inspiring and captivating.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
The pieces are brought beautifully to life by the US Army Field Band, whose quality I appreciate more each time I hear it. If your concept of a concert band includes poor intonation and widely varied levels of skill among the members, you should hear one of the top US military bands. Hearing this music played by a band made up of uniformly excellent musicians is a truly fine experience.
