Billy Joel: Scenes from an Italian Restaurant

Postby TubaTodd » Sat Mar 26, 2005 4:01 pm

This morning I was getting back to my Long Island roots and I was listening to my Billy Joel collection. While I was listening I heard a tuba part in one of the tunes. Does anyone know who played tuba in "Scenes from an Italian Restaurant" ?

It's not a tuba, just an electric bass. It sounds like one, though, and in the context of the song, would've been appropriate (during the dixie section, with the clarinet solo, right?), but it's still just a bass.

I will need to listen to it again. I may have made a post before properly analyzing what I was hearing. If it is a bass, then it sounds unlike any other bass I have heard.

This is an old post, but worth an answer. Album personnel for "The Stranger" lists "Richie Cannata – tenor and soprano saxophones, clarinet, flute, organ, tuba"

Listened to this last night, and I definitely heard both tuba and trombone in the Dixieland section.

That is one of the greatest pop tunes of all time.
