Tuba Tuba Review

by Mark Keresman

The tuba, alas, has a reputation of being the least cool and most cumbersome of the family of brass instruments--until the album TUBA TUBA, that is. A quartet of two tubas, accordion, and drums, TUBA is the vehicle for American Dave Bargeron (Blood Sweat & Tears, many big bands) and Michel Godard (French National Orchestra, Ray Anderson). Each fellow endows his tuba with exhilarating swing, grace, and (of course) humor on classics by Charlie Parker and John Coltrane.
