BIG, Bold Acoustics, Essential Americana, Audiophile HDCD!

All the best-known marches by John Philip Sousa, featuring the Dallas Wind Symphony, America's premier professional windband, conducted by its music director, Jerry Junkin!

No marches are quite as inspired as those by America's beloved March Master, John Philip Sousa. Jerry Junkin leads the renowned Dallas Wind Symphony through the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights of every windband! Recorded by "Prof." Johnson in the big, bold acoustics of the Meyerson Symphony Center, this collection of Sousa favorites and rarities qualifies as Essential Americana.

"America's rise in patriotism following the September 11th attacks is well known, and if any music deserves to be an anthem to this vast sentiment, it is the work of John Philip Sousa, ‘America's March Master,‘ as this collection is subtitled. Every Sousa march that you can think of is here, including a few like ‘El Capitan‘ and ‘The Picadore‘ that you may not know were by Sousa but you have heard, and often. The playing and arrangements are stirring, with the Dallas Wind Symphony, Jerry Junkin conducting, creating some real heavy metal. The HDCD sound is very open and hugely powerful, many of the marches ending in a bang that only Telarc's 1812 Overture recordings match in terms of sheer dynamic range. Like a pot of black coffee to your flag-waving soul, STRICTLY SOUSA is a collection that I, as an American in late 2001, wouldn't do without, and one for which we audiophiles can once again thank Reference Recordings." -- Marc Mickelson, Soundstage!
