Improvised solo that I can live with

Postby Art Hovey » Sat Oct 29, 2016 11:05 pm

I frequently take gigs on which I am expected to play mostly upright bass, but with some numbers on tuba. I am not interested in soloing on bass, but I look forward to an occasional solo on tuba. (Especially when Jimmy Mazzy is on banjo!) I'm not always satisfied with the results, but here's one that I am willing to share:

In the other set (part 1) I did a solo on "Laughing Samba", but it's not quite a keeper:
