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.

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?"

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.
