What a treat. And I love watching him rehearse and talk to the musicians.

Very neat, thanks for posting.

Not to nitpick a fun piece, but there's progression that reminds me a bit of "Promenade (Tourists On The Menu)" from JAWS (OST). Appropriately nautical!

Indeed. I wish there was some extended footage of just the rehearsal bit.

I've been waiting for this piece for a few months now, so I'm glad that it's out -- and the WHOLE thing too, not just a snippet.

It's a kick seeing how sprightly Williams still gets when conducting.

Beautiful piece! And I must agree with Mike above, John is in top form. Marvelous music, with great color and vigor, with a joy of life that reminded me in spirit of 'One Barrel Chase' from my favorite "Jaws". It really is a thrill to see him so productive with these little gems, following his gorgeous Oboe Concerto. Superb playing, too, by the USMC band; they were as brilliant and shiny as Colonel Colborn's shoes.

So for all who are interested, this piece just got a commercial recording on this new disc:

https://www.giamusic.com/store/resource/inventions-recording-cd1004

Includes a piece by Broughton as well, and the rest of the disc is great too.

(And though I linked the label's page, it's a 'normal' release which can be found at Amazon and many other places)

eMusic link, for all you dinosaurs who still use it, like me (it's now run by 7digital, so 320 bitrate, at least).

Heavens, at 3:52 in the video it looked like Jerry or Elmer with their flowing White Hair sitting back there! Or Jerry Van Dyke.

Great video! Thanks for sharing!

This is beautiful. For all the criticism our President is getting, it is wonderful that one of our nation's great composers is paying tribute to him.

Don't know if I'd interpret it as a tribute to the currently sitting president. More a piece designed just for this band.

Even if it was for the president himself (which it isn't), the current president was not president in 2013.

Just what the fake news media wants you to believe. But let's avoid politics. It is a wonderful tribute to our president.

Yes, it's a wonderful John Williams piece composed especially with this particular group of talented musicals in mind.

IMHO, it is not a tribute to the President at all, but rather to the ensemble itself, for its 250th Anniversary. The Marine Band is nicknamed "The President's Own," whoever happens to be in office. The name dates back to 1801.

Where's Eric Paddon when you need him?
