I keep trying to get my tuba player to let me play "Big Noise from Winnetka"
with him. I don't understand why he won't go for it. :-)

Yes, thanks for the reminder. We have not had the two beat/four debate for
a while - tuba vs string bass, which swings more etc. I remember there
were casualties and hot words.......time to resurrect that one?
P.S. I prefer string bass for versatility but it is marginal.
