    Wow, time warp here!

    Something I'm learning: - nice clear lines of melody and no "information overload"!

    Thanks for sharing this rendering Gary.
    Much enjoyed and appreciated.

    Thanks for listening, Michael.
    I'm just the messenger. This is all Sousa.

    Gary,

    Nicely done, I would suggest more low brass, particularly sousaphone and a more drastic change of tempo at the trio. Of the nearly 100 marches that Sousa composed, most of them had dramatic volume changes when passages were introduced by different instruments. You have done this well.

    Thanks for posting and best wishes,
    John

    Thanks for listening, John.
    Although it's been more than 50 years ago, I still think of the movie
    which mostly focused on his dealings with other musicians and the public.
    It was not any kinder to Sousa than AMADEUS was to Mozart.
    I believe it was Clifton Webb who portrayed Sousa.
    In years past it seems that everyone has their idea about how to perform marches, and that would probably be OK with Sousa.

    Very well done rendering of this Sousa march, Gary.

    Much enjoyed!

    You might back of the volume a bit, I seem to hear
    some crackle on this.

    My best,



    David

    Thanks for listening, David.
    I'm finding that Mozart, Beethoven and Sousa are all consistant at writing melodic and harmonic lines which are predictable.
    This is a needed observation for me.
