    Big Alice goes from the Bo Diddly rhythm figure and gets more raucous as the piece goes on.”

    • Howard Johnson

    When Howard heard Don Pullen’s chart, he immediately wanted to arrange the piece for Gravity to play. During a rehearsal when he brought the arrangement to the band, he called Don Pullen and the ensemble played the arrangement on Pullen’s telephone answering machine. When Don Pullen heard the musical message, he immediately called Howard and exclaimed that “he loved it!”

    Howard Johnson’s jazz tuba ensemble is envisioned as a tuba choir- with tubas in F, E flat, CC, and BB flat- that encourages tuba players to learn to play in the upper register. His charts were originally written for his tuba jazz ensemble, Gravity, formed in 1968 with Howard Johnson as solo lead tuba. The charts can in fact be performed with euphoniums; but he formed his group, made his arrangements and developed this specific instrumentation 50 years ago as a statement about tubas and prefers to hear his arrangements played in this configuration, encouraging tuba players to develop the range required. His most important advice is that whatever instrumentation is used, make it fun and find the best jazz rhythm section!

    This versatile solo works great as a showpiece for either euphonium or trombone with a variety of accompaniments. The accompanying ensemble can be trombone quintet, tube/euphonium ensemble, or simply a mix of low brass instruments. This accompaniment will also work with the original trumpet solo edition.

    Composer: Neloms, Bob Arranger: Johnson, Howard

    Tuba solo, 5 Tubas, Piano, Bass and Drum Set

    “I learned this tune from Bob Neloms when I was 18 and he was 16 years old. I’m still playing it although he barely remembers writing it.”

    • Howard Johnson

    Howard Johnson’s arrangement of Evolution was first performed in the early 1970s. Recordings of the arrangement with the original Gravity personnel have been lost. Bob Neloms is known for his active musical life as a post-bop jazz pianist in New York starting in the late 1960s. The story has it that many years later when Howard played Evolution for Bob Neloms, Bob did not recall the composition. The evolution is that learning and recreating Bob Neloms’ chart was monumental for Howard. He continued to use this composition to build his knowledge of jazz harmony and to develop and sharpen his improvisational skills.

    Fly with the Wind is what McCoy does better than anyone else. The soaring melodic and intense rhythmic nature of this composition carries me aloft.”

    • Howard Johnson

    Fly with the Wind was originally recorded in 1976. The album featuring this title track was McCoy Tyner’s first all-strings project with flute, oboe and his rhythm section featuring McCoy Tyner, piano, Ron Carter, bass, and Billy Cobham, drums. Later in 1992, The Turning Point album was released on the Birdology label with McCoy Tyner’s Big Band, featuring Howard as both a tubist and an arranger.
