Spend your money on a "real" pro!!

"Being a tubist myself, I am always on the look out for a good recorging. If you are in the mood for someone who knows how to push alot of valves in not a lot of time, then this CD is perfect for you. It is full of it! Granted, there are plentey of lyrical phrases which are played very nicely, but to give it the title "Virtouso," come on. You would be wise to spend your money on a Roger Bobo, or Sam Pilafian CD."
Poor by modern standards.

"I agree with "Music Fan".

I'm sure Mr Morgan is a decent player but this recording does him no favours. The tone is un-focused and at times comes accross as un-melodic. What's with the breaks in the line in The Swan?? Changing octave mid-phrase is ridiculous. Many of the pieces simply don't stand up to scrutiny.

Through history there aren't many tuba players I'd want to hear play a recital; Fletcher, Bobo and Jacobs come to mind.

Consider what the most recent recording generation of tubists are putting out and it's another Solar System. Do yourself a favour and check out Mssrs Szentpali, Baadsvic, Sheridan and-so-on to see where the tuba's at these days."

"Kevin Morgan's great, and his choice of music is wonderful-recommended in the highest terms!"
