Alford, Kenneth J.
Kenneth J. Alford (21 February 1881 – 15 May 1945) was a British composer of marches for band. He composed marches which are considered to be great examples of the art. He was a Bandmaster in the British Army, and Royal Marines Director of Music. Conductor Sir Vivian Dunn called Ricketts "The British March King." Ricketts’ frequent use of the saxophone contributed to its permanent inclusion in military bands. [source from Wikipedia]
