Fillmore - Rolling Thunder (Concert Band), arr. Marc Oliver
Rolling Thunder is a circus march written by Fillmore in 1918. Fillmore, an aficionado of circus music and himself a trombone player in a few circus bands, wrote this march with a challenging part for trombone. Transcribed here for Concert Band.
John Clifford Heed (1862-1908) was known as the March Wizard, and has more than 60 published marches to his credit. In Storm and Sunshine was one of his earliest works, and it remains his most popular work to this day. It has all the ingredients for a great march, and this new edition by Marc Oliver provides a fresh new approach to the long time favorite.
