The fourth in ‘The March King Collection’ featuring four of John Philip Sousa’s most popular marches transcribed for brass sextet, King Cotton was written in 1895 when the Sousa Band played for three weeks at the Cotton States and International Exposition held in Atlanta, Georgia where it is reported that there were almost 800,000 visitors. This was a time when southern USA cotton production was vitally important – the phrase ‘Cotton is King’ was appropriate and widely used.
