Program Notes

A march in which the basses have the melody throughout.

- Program Note from score

Getty Huffine was working at an axe-handle factory when his hometown of Bowlign Green, Kentucky, organized its first town band in 1907, and he was accepted to play valve trombone. Over the years he taught himself to play tuba, and held a special love for the low brasses when he began composing marching, including Them Basses March and this boisterous romp.
