 Wonderful Array of Familiar and Not so Familiar December 3, 2012 By Malcolm D. Smith (Niagara Falls, ON) See All My Reviews "This compilation provides an excellent range of music from great American composers. There are lots of familiar items plus many not as well known selections. The recordings are generally very good. It would have been nice to have more original artists performing the selections."
