Ferde Grofe - Mississippi Suite

Grofe (1892-1972) was an American arranger and composer, doomed to be remembered only for his Grand Canyon suite. Actually, he composed a number of such American scenery suites, that may be a bit on the light side (and bordering on film music), but that are fun to listen to. I selected the Mississippi Suite (also known as Mississippi: A Journey in Tones) from 1926. Relevant links below.
