Cornet Favorites / Highlights from "Cousins"

news & reviews

  • about this album

    An "essential for any serious collection of Americana," says the Washington Post, Cornet Favorites "represents the kind of music that was played to while away summer Sunday afternoons on bandstands all over America" in the early 20th century. Schwarz, the Post concludes, "catches precisely the blend of relaxed enjoyment and technical brilliance the music requires."
