Alessandro Fossi. I really admire his playing from a sound and musicality perspective (it makes me think of a great singer)

He has lots of recordings on youtube and a few cd's.

When "playing in a jazz style" on the tuba, it is not necessary to try to sound bad.

I (mostly) enjoy listening to really good players making really good orchestras, quintets, and jazz bands sound even better.

Same here :tuba:

If you're impatient, skip to 4:45.

His Sunflower City albums are totally amazing.

There are a lot of technically great 'tuba stars' today, but very few of them catch my ear.
My favorite players have all passed or retired by now. And like a few others have said; tuba sounds it's best in an ensemble of some type. :tuba:
