John Philip Sousa (1854-1932) is an American icon. Most famous for his military marches, the composer-bandmaster led a disciplined group of devoted musicians on numerous American tours and around the world, shaping a new cultural landscape. Paul E. Bierley documents every aspect of the "March King's" band: its history, its star performers, its appearances on recordings and radio, and the problems they faced on their 1911 trip around the world. Enhanced by more than 120 images and photographs, The Incredible Band of John Philip Sousa also contains six statistical appendixes detailing where the band played, a complete list of musicians, instrumentation of the band, program listings, and a discography
"A remarkable array of carefully arranged and meticulously detailed data... Bierley opens doors to new arenas of American music research... With this remarkable book, Sousa research is now ready to really begin."--Nineteenth-Century Music Review "The premier Sousa authority, Bierley caps his forty-year career with this admirably comprehensive tome on his--and many Americans'--favorite subject... Highly recommended."--Choice "Solidly researched, the book provides a view of music in American life not found in other studies of Sousa or the period. Highly recommended."--Library Journal
