An American Patrol
An American Patrol seeks to reflect the depths of the American heritage with each unique and beloved track. During an era when America was wrapped up in the Civil War, many composers began to write functional, important military pieces used to entertain and march the troops. This type of music, currently known as a march, is still popular in concert halls worldwide. In addition to the marches found on this album, An American Patrol also includes several enthusiastic American anthems, comprised of driving rhythms and jazz-infused harmonies. Led on this album by Major Douglas Monroe, The United States Air Force Heritage of America Band plays beautifully on each and every culturally infused piece. With the purpose of representing this nation's musical heritage, the USAF Heritage of America Band recorded this diverse collection of works, An American Patrol.
