Notes and Editorial Reviews

If you only have in your store one version of Sousa marches, this new Altissimo CD should be it. Nobody on earth plays these marches like the United States Marine Band - "The President's Own." As an added bonus, there is a performance of the Washington Post March from 1890 which features Sousa himself conducting his own band. The recording also captures a wonderful brass band sound. Let's face it, Sousa wrote some of the most infectious tunes of any composer who ever lived. If you only have in your store one version of Sousa marches, this new Altissimo CD should be it.
