Sousa: Deep Cuts, Volume 1
Everyone is familiar with, at the very least, a handful of John Philip Sousa's magnificent marches. Melodies from The Washington Post, The Stars and Stripes Forever, and The Liberty Bell can be found in countless films, television programs, commercials, and anywhere patriotic music is to be heard. However, these works barely scratch the surface of Sousa's deep catalogue of amazing compositions. The Sousa: Deep Cuts series from Altissimo! Recordings, seeks to highlight his more obscure works, from less-familiar marches, to waltzes and suites. This collection, all recorded by "The President's Own" United States Marine Band, is the only way to hear some of these pieces, and is perfect for hardcore fans of "The March King."
