Heavy Brass

I know. I’ve heard ALL the jokes and pickup lines about “what a big horn you have.” Here’s one maybe you haven’t heard: many tubas are in fact “compensating brass instruments.” When you’re done chuckling, you can google that to see what it actually means.

A couple awesome photos taken by the amazing Ron Amato in NYC, featuring a couple of the tubas I play…

Ron’s an awesome photographer, one with whom I’m delighted to have started what I hope might be a continuing body of work. Watch this space!
