Program Notes

Karl L. King was the absolute master of writing marches that are very playable, but sound big and strong. Free World march is one of the best examples of his talents, and this fine new edition by James Swearingen includes parts for all the modern instruments not included in the original. The work is skillfully edited and articulated to the style of the period.
