Brass instruments of the early nineteenth century were quite different from those of today, so this does not, thankfully, sound like a modern brass band that ought to be playing Sousa. The instruments are softer and the sound more mellow and less "brassy". The band for this recording is The Chestnut Brass Company (and friends), and the different tracks are played by various larger and smaller subsets of the group entirely on either actual period instruments or on modern reproductions. Johnson died in 1844, just as the polka craze was beginning, but since the album also includes compositions by some of his contemporaries (band members, fellow composers, and rivals), the selection of dances includes those of the years immediately following his death as well. The specific tracks include: Two polkas, "Phoenix" and "Evergreen".

It just sounds sort of like early Americana. In consequence of this the Chestnut Brass, with scholarly discretion, plays these pieces just as written with no speculative improvisation at all. That means that they come out rather rhythmically simple, sounding sort of like antiquated American military music, or music for dancing and social occasions.
