Notes & Reviews:

John Philip Sousa personified the comparative innocence and brash energy of America around the turn of the 20th Century. Alongside the march that made him famous and later sparked a world-wide dance craze, 'The Washington Post', this disc includes excerpts from one of the earliest musicals to achieve Broadway success, 'El Capitan'. With its origins reaching as far back as 1557, The Royal Artillery Band is one of the largest symphonic wind bands in the British Army. Keith Brion is a specialist in Sousa's period style and has published many performing editions of The March King's music.

Fanfare
Keith Brion is one of the world's premier Sousa scholars and conductors - he has his own New Sousa Band and has published numerous performing editions of Sousa's music - and I have little to add to the praises heaped on him... The Royal Artillery Band, with more than 50 members, plays with great elegance and style; as is typical its pace is a little more leisurely than that of an American ensemble... .these are excellent performances in their own right and should be snapped up by all Sousa lovers. Recommended.
