John Philip Sousa’s tireless touring with his world-famous band and the distinctive quality of his compositions ensured legendary status and the affectionate title of ‘The March King’. This tenth volume of Sousa’s complete works for wind band under the ‘energy and precision’ (ClassicsToday.com) of Keith Brion’s directorship includes a remarkably descriptive Humoresque, the rare Jazz America fantasy from 1925, and the People in Glass Houses Suite on the subject of various varieties of alcoholic drink, complete with popping corks.

Review By Infodad.com,January 2012

the 10th volume of Keith Brion’s excellent survey of Sousa’s works contains seven of them—all comparative rarities…show Sousa, decade after decade, producing gems, most of them as suitable for the concert stage as for the parade ground. Yet there was more to Sousa’s work than marches, as this fine series continues to show. One of the best things about the Naxos Sousa series is that it provides a chance to hear both well-known and little-known Sousa marches while also showing, time and again, that the famous bandmaster composed in a variety of forms with considerable flair. © 2012 Infodad.com Read complete review
