Dancing to Freedom

For the last six weeks, I’ve been playing the Charles Barlow’s Orchestra’s “Dancing to Freedom” for my daily exercise routine. It consists of Revolutionary War era tunes in instrumental arrangements conforming to modern dance rhythms. The 14 tunes are sprightly with clear dance rhythms and confortable tempos. The cha cha’s, however, are a little fast for beginning dancers. My top three
favorite tracks are “Marion” rumba, a melody of Joseph Haydn; “Lucky Escape” samba, and “Over the Hills and Far Away/Lilliebulero” foxtrot. (That’s a very catchy tune that keeps stuck in my mind. I am always humming it or whistling it at various time of day.
