The best I've ever heard of band music for inspiration and beauty and just plain fun - excellent presentation! This entire album is a celebration of goodness and liberation of the human spirit, and its glorification, without militarism, without severity, played with happiness. If soldiers would march to this music it would be joyously, not with intent of force and its glorification. Jerker Johansson and the musicians of the Swedish Air Force band have captured the spirit of life and goodness that the citizen soldier is supposed to defend - when the forces of darkness are out of hand, this is the music that heartens and inspires the forces of light, not only as a boost to fearlessness but as a reminder of the life, peace and goodness that they are defending and sacrificing for. Beyond this philosophical description, "Strike Up the Band" is just plain beautiful Park Concert music to be played in time of peace in the sunshine with picnics and children playing all around in the grass and fields of flowers. It could easily support any fun dance coreographed in a setting of gardens and meadows and rain in sunshine. "Strike up the Light, and Fun!"Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
