Agree - I was looking for any "iconic" jazz tuba player - somebody  
who the average man on the street would know about (like a Louis,  
Duke or Miles...)

Don't think there are any except maybe Howard Johnson because of his  
playing in the Saturday Night Live band and the shows he did with Taj  
Mahal and Gravity.
