THE HUMBOLDT BRASS BAND | 1866 - ca. 1880
Upon his return home to Kansas following the Civil War, bandsman Richard Redﬁeld formed the Humboldt Brass Band in the spring of 1866. The band’s hand-written part books survive to this day, carefully collected and preserved by Carl Busch (former conductor of the Kansas City Symphony) and later the Sousa Archives and Center for American Music at the University of Illinois where they are housed today. This recording is a sampling of the over 70 works found in these books, brought back to life for the ﬁrst time in over a century by the Vintage Brass Band!
