Notes & Reviews:

  • 'The March King', John Philip Sousa, composer of over 130 marches and numerous other works, was a legend in his lifetime
  • The Central Band of the RAF is one of the foremost military bands in the United Kingdom, and the first outside the USA to be awarded the 'John Philip Sousa Citation for Musical Excellence'.
  • Volume 13 includes 5 world premiers and 'In memoriam', played at the funeral of assassinated American President James Garfield

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
The first piece to grab me is the Overture to Katherine, an 1879 operetta. It's tender and unassuming for the first five minutes. The pieces fit events and people of Sousa's time. An agreeable 'Resumption March' (1879) celebrated the return of silver and gold coins after the Civil War. 'Gallagher & Shean' (1923) honors a then-popular comedy duo. 'While Navy Ships are Coaling' (1923) quotes songs that were popular then. Fine playing by the Central Band of the RAF.
