Synopsis

Amazon.com
"When John Philip Sousa's mother told him to march right upstairs to bed she didn't have to ask him twice." That's comedian Michael Feldman's opening to the notes for this rousing collection of Sousa marches. As host of Public Radio International's "Whad 'Ya Know" show, Feldman has gained a following for his stand-up humor. Here he is truly impressive for his musicological know-how, which he mixes up with great one-liners. "As a composer, Sousa considered himself lucky to live in a time of war--it was good for business," he says. These Sousa performances by trumpeter John Wallace's ensemble, the Wallace Collection, are the best in the "Whad 'Ya Know About the Classics?" series. --Gwendolyn Freed
