Michel Godard & Dave Bargeron - Köln 2001

Tuba anyone? Two big horns for two big men... Dave Bargeron and Michel Godard are among the finest tuba players in today's jazz scene. Bargeron has been around for a while and has frequently turned up on the bass trombone chair of bigger bands, Godard has done all kinds of things, including a long stint in the fine band of oud player Rabih Abou-Khalil.

Here they are together, doing the flight of the bumble bee and other crazy stuff. An there's a squeezebox as well... but don't be scared, this is actually a very musical set, too! Kenwood Dennard keeps the beat funky in this all 'round fine show!

They also released a CD that can be found at, for instance:

#13 was (0:42) but full of skips - I kept the two ok segments that happily make some kind of sense, too...
