Howard Johnson and Gravity

Ensemble of five tubas with Dave Bargeron, Bob Stewart, Earl McIntyre, Joe Dalay, Sam Burtis
No, Howard Johnson does not own the hotel chain, but he's none the less famous in the States: that's because the tuba player founded the Saturday Night Live Band in 1975 and still) leads it today. But what's more remarkable is Johnson's having successfully turned an otherwise heavy and ponderous instrument into an expressive asset for contemporary jazz. Last spring he released a much awaited album with Gravity, an ensemble of six tubaists—or tubists, if you prefer—whose originality is rather hard to deny. lt got rave reviews in France, notably in Jazz Magazine, who gave it five stars.
