I forwarded a clip of "country tuba" to a few of my tubist friends,
including Chester Schmitz, retired principal tuba from Boston POPs and
Boston Symphony.  He's now living in Pensacola.


Here is Chester's assessment and query:


Dave Gannet followed me at the U. of Iowa, c. 1965 or so.  He once borrowed 

an arrangement for tuba solo which I had played with the Iowa Band.  He is 

very good... 

.  Met him once...

A real talent, as this clip shows.



Please send me an update, off-line, so that I can give Chester  some current
information.  When I Googled Dave Gannett, his recording of "Tubas From
Hell" came up several times and reference to his having played with the
"Black Dogs" but not with them currently.
