Piano Hurdles and Tuba Phobia

Okay, I admit it. I'm not a huge piano fan. (Not that small pianos are any different.) Sometimes, however, I'll come across someone who can really get something moving--like Ahmad Jamal. What a pleasant suprise to stumble upon him. Maybe the piano hurdle is just a mood thing. I like Horace Silver just fine, and there are many others, I just don't generally jump on the piano bandwagon. I guess my bandwagon is guitar, sax or trumpet. Again, no tubas, please. (Ironically, I learned that tubas played a key part in early jazz. I guess that I"ll have to steer clear of early jazz until I'm over my tuba phobia.)
Interested in learning more about the tuba? Get an earful here at Tuba News.
