What can you say? The "President's Own" is hands down the best wind band in the world.
This recording of marches is unquestionably the finest I have ever heard. To understand the marches as played by the United States Marine band you have to recognize the standard of musicianship in the band. The entries, the brilliant trumpeting, the majesty of the reeds and the absolute attention to detail by the percussion is remarkable. Colonel Bourgeois Director of Music for this recordings has taken marches to another level. The accurcy and performance is absolutely in the highest tradition of the Marien band. If you like marches and want to hear the best. This is far and above anything anywhere and I have several recordings and understand the medium.Even Sousa would have been envious! This is a must for evey military band buff!
Sound Off for the US Marine Band
Sound off one two Sound Off three four Bring it on down now one two three four one two three four!! There is nothing quite like the sound of marching marines. Those are the sounds that stick in your head even after years of rust. This album will bring you that same feel. The US Marine Band is one of the oldest in the nation and they do that tradition proud with this excellent album of marches. Track Opus 99 is one of my favorites but I'm sure you'll have a few of your own after a couple of listenings. If you liked this try this one also by the US Marine Band: Originals
