Up a Lazy River
Sam Pilafian is a household name for tuba players - adoration well deserved given his musical and pedagogical contributions. However, many tubists are unaware of Prof. Pilafian's collaboration with jazz guitarist Frank Vignola in the group Travelin' Light. TL specializes in early jazz standards (some of their work can be purchased at Amazon ) of the Carmichael, Berlin, etc. variety.
I can't locate a YouTube video of the group, but I do enjoy this duet by Sam Pilafian and Catalin Rotaru.
