Info

Our band heritage embraces a vast treasure of traditional marches of various styles. The “jazz march” or more generally spoken, the “swinging march” still is more or less an exception. This was exactly the reason why Kees Vlak decided to compose a “jazz march”, which is clearly defined by stylistic elements of American origin.
The first and at the same time the most famous swing march, the “St. Louis Blues March” goes back to the famous bandleader Glenn Miller, when he directed the United States Army Air Force Band in Europe as a Major during World War II.
The march “Blow Your Horn” offers the swing musician of today ample opportunities of what is considered quite normal today, namely to demonstrate his abilities even in a march.
