Bass Breweries is, sadly, now owned by a Dutch or Belgian company!

       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.
