Notes & Reviews:

This CD of works that long ago achieved 'lollipop' status, including Elgar's Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1, Anderson's The Typewriter and Wood's Fantasia on British Sea Songs, features the playing of the Brandenburgisches Staatsorchester Frankfurt under the direction of Howard Griffiths together with the Fine Arts Brass. Particularly noteworthy are the Tin Pan Alley pieces: Carmichael's melancholic Stardust, Wright 'Fats' Waller's ambiguously ironic Smashin' Thirds and Valentine Stomp, as well as Berlin's melodically and rhythmically extravagant Puttin' on the Ritz.
