I'm like you. I would like to see a tuba in every brass quintet. Last summer I heard a concert by a Cedar Rapids, Iowa based brass quintet called the Cedar Valley Brass Quintet. The bass part was also being played by a bass trombone. It sounded pretty good. When I talked with the bass trombone player, he said it was easier for him to bring to the gig than his 35 lb. tuba. Hey, who am I to argue with him about that? Some days, I also wish to make my burden a little easier!
