Following a litany of requests, Dorati's supreme recording of Grofe's Grand Canyon Suite is reissued on Eloquence together with the original coupling of Robert Russell Bennett's swaggering and masterly orchestral synthesis from Porgy and Bess. As a bonus, Howard Hanson's bright Mercury recording of Grofe's Mississippi Suite fills out this reissue.
