Composer James Reese Europe, one of the most famous African-American musicians of his day, was called the “Martin Luther King of music” by pianist Eubie Blake. The first African-American bandmaster in the United States Army, Europe gained great popularity as a dance band leader, a military band leader, recording artist, and a composer of merit. Known in New York music circles, and also for touring Europe with his National Guard band, Europe is remembered today for composing several works, including “Castles In Europe” with the subtitle “The Innovation Trot – Ragtime March.” This delightful work is arranged for today’s concert band by Chandler L. Wilson. An enjoyable ragtime work from an American composer to be remembered!
