Tales from the far Side 11.03.21 TUBA MAGIC - Remembering Howard Johnson

On this edition I’d like to remember the late great Tuba virtuoso and pioneer Howard Johnson who sadly passed away in January 2021 at the age of 79, remembered here with some of his greatest music as sideman, musical director and leader of his own groups, from his early days with Hank Mobley via his work with Taj Mahal and the Band to his leadership of All Tuba Bands like Gravity and others.

TALES FROM THE FAR SIDE is live on air on CRC102.9fm and on www.crcfm.ie every Thursday 8-9 pm with a repeat on Saturday 9-10 pm. And there is a podcast of the show available on the web site all through the week. The show has established itself over the years with a small but devoted listenership (even beyond Jazz-fans) and since the introduction on internet the listenership extended nationally and internationally.

A day without Jazz is boring!
