Pictures were taken of the "big 5" and the USC tuba class, including myself and Winton, and I think they were done with Jim Self's camera. I don't know if he might post them on his website or something. I'll try to remember to find out next time I see him.
The best part of the session, I thought, was when the eight(!) horns switched to tubens and three of the tubas switched to cimbasso for a humongous D minor chord crescendo. A fatter (phatter) sound I am not sure I have ever heard. Also, I think that for that section Bill Reichenbach and Phil Teele had switched to contrabass trombone.
What fun! I love being in LA!
