yes, I was also involved in those hilarious duo sessions. I was hoping to get Cynthia Sayer as my partner (of course!) but they paired me with the (excellent) tubist from Orpheon Celesta. 
Soprano sax and tuba! We couldn't even agree about chosing the two tunes to be played, finally we decided a slow Bflat blues and a fast Jada; all was going well till we started Jada in two different keys. Courtain.

Actually, I had a ball, it gassed me, as Pops used to say. 

Hey, Butch, hope to play together again! Maybe in New orleans next year! In the same keys!
