"My 11 year old son is a "tubist" for 3 years now. Not recalling a hearing tuba virtuoso, I thought I'd try to get him a CD for Christmas to see what such a thing sounds like. Obviously I'm an amateur, and can't compare the performances against other tubas. But these tubas sounds great through my Magnapan speakers. The CD is not just tubas; it's a collection of music featuring tubas, with great accompanyment, some lyrically. We particularly like "Waltzing Matilda" and a rag from The Sting. If these tubas are from Hell, I can't wait to hear the ones from Heaven. You won't be disappointed with this music."
Tuba or Not Tuba, that is the question

"You'll enjoy this CD. Seems like the only time we hear tubas are on cartoons from the 1940s, but that's okay because most of the material here is from the first half of the 20th century. So you thought tubas were only sound effects for Dumbo? Guess again. There's some really enjoyable jazz here, and yes, unlike a lot of jazz, "Tubas From Hell" has a great sense of humor. "Yakkety Tuba"...how could anyone resist? But this CD isn't a joke, it makes for good listening, good enough to reinvent how you see the tuba."
