The career of a jazz tuba player will, in all likelihood, be diverse. The great Bob Stewart has made a name for himself in numerous eclectic settings, from the blues of Taj Mahal, to Mingus’s demanding compositions and the free explorations of Arthur Blythe. On his new recording Connections – Mind The Gap, Stewart bridges his own arrangements of compositions of his peers and heroes with movements from a special chamber piece entitled “In Color” that he commissioned from Jessie Montgomery for the PUBLIQuartet string ensemble.
