“It takes a lot to tame out-of-towners talking through music at a jazz club, but the drummer Max Roach, playing at the Blue Note did it with the tune ”God Bless the Child”, and had it performed by the tuba player Antonio Underwood. It was quiet and exquisite, and even the drunks took notice that something special was happening.”
Peter Watrous, New York Times
ALL THAT JAZZ!
Tony Underwood Premier Jazz Tuba Player
"Guitarist/producer Jerry Stucker and jazz great Columbia recording artist, Eddie Henderson (trumpet) are laying down music tracks for Tony Underwood�s debut album. Buddy Saleman is doing the engineering at Studio 684, San Francisco, California.
Tony Underwood is the world�s premier jazz tuba player. Underwood appears (tuba) along with Eddie Henderson (trumpet) on jazz giant McCoy Tyner�s release, JOURNEY and was one of the arrangers for Bebe Winan�s Atlantic Records release, BEBE WINAN.
Recently I'�ve had the pleasure of hearing some of Underwood'�s unreleased tracks to his new yet untitled CD. I can tell you Tony goes where no jazz tuba player has gone before. To add to the mix is Underwood�'s soulful singing.
Tony Underwood'�s music is literally going to blow you away!"
