Happy Independence Day, everyone! In my continuing effort to expand beyond the ubiquitous marches of John Philip Sousa, I present “Bravura” by C.E. Duble. It will likely sound familiar to many of you, so much so that you might have thought that it actually was written by Sousa. It also happened to be one of my favorite marches to actually, um, march to during my military days.
Below is a rendition of “Bravura” by the U.S. Air Force Heritage of America Band (fka the USAF Tactical Air Command Band). These are the same folks that still have lots of free patriotic and ceremonial military music available for download at their website HERE and HERE. Enjoy.
