WHOA - Howard Johnson rocks the Jimi Hendrix tune "Voodoo Chile"

I don't know the origin of this video but all I can say is WHOA. It is not every day that you get the opportunity to hear a Tuba being played like that. 

The player is jazz Tubist Howard Johnson, who is well known for his solo work and his low brass jazz ensemble Gravity. If you are unfamiliar with Howard Johnson pick up one of his records. It will not be money wasted. I recommend Gravity on the Verve record label, which can be found at
Howard Johnson's music is essential for anyone who wants to try Tuba in a jazz setting. Whether you want to play tunes out of the real book or try out for a jazz band or combo, Howard Johnson's music is a great tool for young Tubists.
