John Philip Sousa / Kevin R. Tam - Freedom Band Press
Publisher Desc. John Philip Sousa shall forever be regarded as the "March King". However, his body and scope of work extend well beyond the marches which made him so famous. In a rough accounting of Sousa's body of work, marches make up only the second most numerous of his efforts, some 135 march compositions versus over 320 arrangements and transcriptions for Band. Outside of his marches, most of the Sousa catalog, including his humoresques, remains unpublished and largely unheard today.By way of an old Sousa concert program, we learn the narrative of his humoresque "Among My Souvenirs." In it, the Nichols song "Among My Souvenirs" is lengthened into a sketch. This is likely the first performance of this Sousa work by a band other than Sousa's own.
