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
. 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.
