If you are thinking of his book on how to play bass lines, it is still  
available here:


Basic Rhythms and the Art of Jazz Improvisation, by Joe Tarto. Written  
for tuba or bass trombone, string bass, bass guitar, an excellent  
basic method for beginning jazz playing, especially in traditional/ 
Dixieland styles. Improvising, syncopation, chords, walking bass,  
breaks, blues, and Latin rhythms are among the many subjects covered.

If you are thinking of something else, I don't know...
