Program Notes

El Camino Real


Alfred Reed, composer

Alfred Reed’s exciting El Camino Real was commissioned by and dedicated to, the 581st Air Force Band (AFRES) and its Commander, Lt. Col. Ray E. Toler. The first public performance was presented in Sarasota, Florida, on April 15, 1985, with the 581st Air Force Band under the direction of Lt. Col. Toler. Subtitled "A Latin Fantasy," this music is based on a series of chord progressions common to countless generations of Spanish flamenco guitarists, whose fiery style have captivated millions of music lovers.
