King of the Tuba

Bill Bell
“And His Tuba”
Golden Crest #CR3015

From the back cover:

“There is no question that among musicians today William Bell would be enthroned as King of the Tuba.  So fantastic are his achievements on the instrument that the professionals who know and understand its difficulties shake their heads in wonder and amazement when they hear him play. ‘He plays it like it was a fiddle,’ one admiring musician said thinking of the lightness of touch and agility of fingering. ‘He plays it like a Franch Horn,’ a distinguished composed added, thinking of the brilliance of tone and the richness of range.

In an age in which superlatives have become suspect through over-usage it is difficult to find suitable words to describe a triumph of this kind. ”
