Ir we're counting euphinium Kiane Zawadi. Also many bassists double on tuba.

Ben Stapp.


This is excellent, though he's already moved on to some other interesting directions.

Bill Dixon worked with tubist John Buckingham on the Thoughts and Son of Sisyphus albums, which are included in the Soul Note Dixon box.

Bob Stewart has made some wonderful recordings over the past 40 years. He's been featured with Arthur Blythe, Lester Bowie, Ray Anderson, Steve Turre, and many others. Check out his website: http://www.bobstewartuba.com/

Joe Daley w. Sam Rivers' Tuba Trio

Oh yes, of course [slaps forehead].

He's also part of Ted Daniel's International Brass & Membrane Corps, which is a contemporary reimagining of the music of King Oliver and well worth experiencing. Hopefully they record an album soon; the live performances have been wonderful.

Bill Roper

Henry Threadgill has often used tuba in his various ensembles... Marcus Rojas on MAKIN' A MOVE (and other 90s recordings), Jose Davila as a member of Zooid...

Also, Gaincarlo Schiaffini's TUBA LIBRE on Random Acoustics.

The smallest I ever heard is a trio that made an LP under Arthur Blythe's leadership, with Bob Stewart and a conga player, Bush Baby.

But no, there was a duo: tubist John Sass with Austrian tap dancer Sabine Hasicka - there were some samples on her website, but I can't find them any more ...

Ellery Eskelin's great trio with Andrea Parkins and Jim Black augmented with Joe Daley (tuba) and Erik Friedlander (cello): recoding is Ramifications on hatology - saw the band live - stupendous

Tony Malaby Tuba Trio with the wonderful Dan Peck - I think the drummer on the recording may be John Hollenbeck

fwiw - Peck is the tuba in the great Novela band - whihc does not have a bassist - last thing one thinks of when hearing the band live is "where is the bassist?"

How about this:

"Jockey Jack Boogie" by Johnny Wicks Swinging Ozarks feat. Preacher Stephens on tuba,

reissued on Pearl LP 13 (Delmark)

About as odd as they comme ...

but fascinating ...

BTW, Jim Self was the Voice of the Mothership in "Close Encounters of the Third Kind." More or less a "mainstream modern" player, as one might expect from a West Coast studio guy, but what a fine player of the instrument (he also plays the fluba, a tuba-flugelhorn cross of his own invention that is held like a trumpet but placed on a stand). He's no slouch as an improviser either.
