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 (Sunnyside Records), 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.

Musicians:
Bob Stewart - tuba
Curtis Stewart - violin
Jannina Norpoth - violin
Nick Revel - viola
Amanda Goekin - cello
Jerome Harris - guitar
Matt Wilson - drums
Randall Haywood - trumpet
Nick Finzer - trombone

Master tuba player and educator Bob Stewart recognizes how fortunate he has been to be affiliated with musical legends and peers who have displayed generosity in allowing him to present his unique conception of tuba playing to receptive audiences. His new recording - Connections - Mind The Gap - (Sunnyside Records) is at once a tribute to those artists representing various styles with whom Stewart was able to ply and develop his trade and it is also a forum to suggest and increase the repertoire for aspiring tuba players.

"Connections - Mind The Gap" is a varied collection of pieces that range from a five movement piece entitled "In Color" that Stewart commissioned from young composer Jessie Montgomery to pieces written by or performed by talented musicians the tuba player has played with over his forty year career. Though the compositions span classical, blues and jazz, the common denominator and uniting element is the tuba.
