Great tuba playing; bad recording
(3 out of 5 stars)
"Roger Bobo is one of the great tubists. The sheer beauty and emotional content of his playing on "Westwood" and the technical virtuosity of his playing on "Yellow Bird" are worth the price of the album. On the last two cuts, he plays Bass French Horn--and where else are ya gonna hear that?!Otherwise, however, I was immensely disappointed in the overall quality of the recording. Everything's a bit quiet and muffled. The arrangements seem very dated (to the '70's). I kept wishing that the guitar, piano, etc., would just shut up so that I could hear the tuba. The first track's melody is irritating and sticks in your head."
