     Searching through some old emails from DJML, i ran across Bill 
Haesler's post from 2000 about the "Bass Ale Blues".  Now, being a 
beer-enthusiast, i had to listen to this song, and found it at 
http://www.redhotjazz.com/. It's quite a nice song, with interesting 
sections and tempo-changes.
     The song is performed (and listenable) by the Original Memphis 5 
and by The Hottentots (aka Red Nichols and friends), but neither page 
mentions who plays the tuba solo. Does anyone know who this is? 
Also, are there words to this song?  I happen to like Bass Ale quite 
a bit, as do a number of my friends, and it would be a hoot to sing 
along to.
