ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“It takes a lot to tame out-of-towners talking through music at a jazz club, but the drummer Max Roach, playing at the Blue Note did it with the tune ”God Bless the Child”, and had it performed by the tuba player Antonio Underwood. It was quiet and exquisite, and even the drunks took notice that something special was happening.”

Peter Watrous, New York Times


ALL THAT JAZZ!

Tony Underwood Premier Jazz Tuba Player
Posted: 2004-01-18

"Guitarist/producer Jerry Stucker and jazz great Columbia recording artist, Eddie Henderson (trumpet) are laying down music tracks for Tony Underwood�s debut album. Buddy Saleman is doing the engineering at Studio 684, San Francisco, California.
Tony Underwood is the world�s premier jazz tuba player. Underwood appears (tuba) along with Eddie Henderson (trumpet) on jazz giant McCoy Tyner�s release, JOURNEY and was one of the arrangers for Bebe Winan�s Atlantic Records release, BEBE WINAN.

Recently I'�ve had the pleasure of hearing some of Underwood'�s unreleased tracks to his new yet untitled CD. I can tell you Tony goes where no jazz tuba player has gone before. To add to the mix is Underwood�'s soulful singing.
Tony Underwood'�s music is literally going to blow you away!"

SmoothJazz.com Review
Uniquely composed “mood music” with definite jazz influences… featuring the jazz tuba. Meet Tony Underwood and check out his artful release TUBA MIRUM. This is soulful, tasty jazz that allows the listener to sink deep into the listening experience. Underwood is a classically trained performer/composer who graduated from Yale School of Music and cut his teeth on jazz in some of Manhattan’s most noteworthy venues. He’s played, performed, composed and arranged for some of the greats including McCoy Tyner, Max Roach, Charlie Haden and BeBe Winans. After an 8-year hiatus, Mr. Underwood returns with a sometimes delicate, often rhythmic and always expressive recording… TUBA MIRUM is a unique find… it offers warmth and delivers richness. Don’t hesitate to purchase this one-of-a-kind musical gem… your friends and fellow jazz enthusiasts will be blown away when you play it… especially when they hear originals like “Uba Dance” and “Just When You Keep It Low To The Ground,” as well as the hip cover of “People Make The World Go ‘Round.” We’re proud to have discovered this extraordinarily cool project!

this was a really unique CD. I have never heard tuba music by itself and it was quite haunting. I especially liked the Moon River selection. Also, TOny has a great voice and I liked his vocals.
