    Before this CD, I had never preordered music before. I had to have it. The Heritage of the March series is arguably the most famous set of band music recordings ever created and the original LPs have long been sought after by collectors. The fact that they were never available commercially and initially were only sent to libraries, bands, and personal friends of Bob Hoe has made them all the more alluring for music collectors. Now the first entry in this series has been released as a CD and it doesn’t disappoint.

    For any march aficionado, you’ve got to be excited about finding fifteen rarely played marches composed by two big names in march music, Hall and Teike, performed by the US Navy Band. The sound quality is good considering the age of these recordings and the playing is top notch. The conductor, a graduate of Eastman School of Music, brings much of the same energy that the esteemed Frederick Fennell poured into his march recordings. For the purists out there, most of Teike’s marches are performed using original editions that are out of print even in his native Germany.

    My only quibble is that the liner notes, while they do provide the complete contents of the original LPs, are not as detailed as some later entries in the series. Each composer gets a bio and both the conductor and Bob Hoe provide personal letters, but the individual marches could be fleshed out a little more with modern scholarship. I’m glad they provided trivia like the fact that March Funebre was played at John F. Kennedy’s funeral or Albanian March is actually named after Albany, New York, but there must be more to know about these pieces. I guess that’s what the Hoe Foundation’s books are for.

    I hope Altissimo continues to release the series. With over 180 LPs recorded, there is a lot of march music heritage to rediscover.
