    Bonnie Raitt, I’ve heard of her.

  2. John Tobin says:

    Bonnie Raitt still sounds good,but I miss Freebo , her bassist who used to occasionally switch to tuba.

  3. Tom McKenney says:

    Freebo won the tuba was great I’d love to hear more bands use the tuba and clarinet

  4. John Tobin says:

    Thanks, El Somnambulo.

    Here is some more tuba love. Howard Johnson from Taj Mahal’s1971 “The Real Thing” album.

    Love the tuba love

    Which took me to Leon Redbone — I don’t know if this is a tuba or a ‘bone but Redbone’s voice always sounds like a tuba to me . . .

    Nice picks ‘bulo. A couple may even make it onto my iPod. You were right about me liking number 10.

    Thanks for sharing your overwhelming coolness.
