Soundtrack for the Fourth

Some quintessential music for the American holiday. Here’s some of what’s on my list for today:

Ellington’s Black, Brown & Beige Suite

Grofe’s Mississippi Suite

Gershwin, just about anything

Sierra Hull’s genius mandolin picking on her “Bombshell”

Alison Krauss and Shawn Colvin’s cover of a classic Paul Simon tune.

Tony Rice and others on “Freeborn Man”

Bluegrass, just about anything.

Any suggestions, out there?

    Louis Moreau Gottschalk – Union. Interesting story behind this Creole pianist. Here’s a link but I think the Filipina pianist Cecile Licad version is better.
