The Best of the Concord Band CD

Beale Street Blues

W. C. Handy

The Concord Band has traditionally featured Dixieland Jazz arrangements in its Summer Pops Concerts at Fruitlands Museums in Harvard, Massachusetts. This arrangement of Beale Street Blues was always one of the highlights of concerts by The Canadian Brass. David Marshall’s adaptation of this great W. C. Handy blues piece includes ad lib solos and some “downright dirty” Dixieland played by the entire band. Beale Street is a famous street in Memphis, Tennessee, a city considered by many to be the home of blues and the birthplace of rock and roll.

Recorded 1993/4/3, William Toland conducting.
