>If the genre is West Coast Revival or New Orleans Marching, then tuba seems
to fit best. If the genre is Chicago or Condon Style, or George Lewis
Revival Style then String Bass seems to fit best. Etc..

The original Dukes of Dixieland had the best of both worlds.  They used a
tuba on the marches, etc., and string bass on the more swinging tunes.
