wasn't that dude just in bass player? It's pretty awesome.
I've seen Kirk Joseph play with the Dirty Dozen Brass Band. We used to call him "Superman," because we couldn't believe a human being could do what he did on sousaphone.
That's some pretty hip tunes.
I really enjoyed reading the article about him in Bass Player. I'm glad they recognized other low-end instruments. They need an article about a bari sax player next
Wow, that's amazing... bass... tone. I like the way that sounds a lot. It's great that it even sounds like fingerstyle funk bass playing. Awesome awesome stuff.
Go see The Dirty Dozen Brass Band if you get the chance. Guy's replacement plays exactly the same style.
Forget the baritone sax -- how about contrabass saxophone, like Anthony Braxton used to play? He needed to stand on a ladder to play it!
Stanton Moore has a song with Tuba as the bass.
There is also a band called Drums and Tuba and the Tuba player does all the bass lines.
Horns work well for that in some cases
That guy has always amazed me. I played sousaphone in high school, but he really "PLAYS" sousaphone. The music also grooves like hell.
That is one hell of a groove on "Thinking of Her" I have heard his work with the Dirty Dozen Brass Band. I knew what to expect but DAYUM that is Funky, awesome tone as well. Great find!!!
That was pretty damn good!
Check out "Howard Johnson and Gravity". Tubas, sousaphones, euphoniums, and more. He did an album with Taj Mahal years ago where he arranged for four tubas. I think it was called "The Real Thing".
If you're interested in great susaphonists be sure to check out Nat McIntosh of the Young Blood Brass Band and Matt Perrine of the New Orleans Night Crawlers (whom I actually got a chance to jam with one time ).
awesome find, jack...
Haha, he sounds like a Fender with flatwounds through an SVT...
DAM!!!! That is some funky stuff, love it. I remember when Howard Johnson put together the all tuba horn section for Taj Mahal's band that was cool. Howard played bass too, but mainly known for Jazz tuba and bari sax. He loved the low end.
Hahah, Yeah man , he's GOT IT! Never did hear him. THNX!
