No one knows how to make American music sound "American" as well as the US Army Field Band! This CD is wonderful! The clarinet solo in "Variations on a Shaker Melody" opens the recording with clarity and simplicity through a warm and crisp tone. The brass fanfares live up to expectations. Charles Osgood's commanding voice is perfect for the narration of "Lincoln Portrait." I wholeheartedly recommend this CD if you love Copland or truly American-inspired music.
