Notes & Reviews:

John Philip Sousa's swift rise to fame and greatness came at a time when band concerts were the most important aspect of musical life in the U.S. The works on this recording range from the early Revival March of 1876 and the stirring Right Forward March from Sousa's time as conductor of the U.S. Marine band, to the "up-to-date" 1920s fox-trot Peaches and Cream and the 1923 Leaves from My Notebook, dedicated to the Campfire Girls of America. Music from Sousa's operetta Chris and the Wonderful Lamp can be found alongside his medley of tunes from Gilbert and Sullivan's The Mikado, which includes many of the hit tunes from this operetta, while The Honored Dead was performed at President Ulysses S. Grant's funeral.

MusicWeb International, 1st July 2013
The disc is not exactly over-packed but there is plenty of interest. The Sound Off March (1885) injects marching pace oompah but also a bitter battle skirl suited to US Marines...The Swedish band has the manner off to a tee.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Listening to this attractive and beautifully produced disc. The music is varied (believe it or not), showing that Sousa commanded a wide musical and expressive range in his medium: compare, for instance, the Peaches and Cream foxtrot with the Marquette University March, both written in the 1920s. The program also includes the Sound Off march, Mikado March, Revival March, and the overture to Chris and The Wonderful Lamp, which is described as a premiere recording.
