On Bob Stewart: Then and Now, his debut CD for the Postcards label, Bob Stewart brings the tuba back to the modern Jazz ensemble. Through the use of various ensembles (with the legendary Taj Mahal, pianist Dave Burrell, a brass band, and a Jazz quintet), Stewart traces the migration and evolution of the music we know today as Jazz; from the west coast of Africa, through the Caribbean, into New Orleans, up the Mississippi to Chicago, and east to New York, where the music launched it’s influence across the globe. In doing so, Stewart redefines both the repertoire and techniques, bridging the gap from Then to Now. Stewart stakes the tuba's claim to its rightful place in the music of the past, present and future.

With the introduction of the walking upright bass in 1923, the Tuba began disappearing from the Jazz ensemble. American Jazz tubist Bob Stewart brings the powerful, deep, and luscious instrument back into Jazz music. Having performed and recorded with a cornucopia of influential artists, such as Charles Mingus, Dizzy Gillespie, McCoy Tyner, Freddie Hubbard, Don Cherry, and Wynton Marsalis, Stewart has garnered a reputation as one of the industry’s best brass players. With this impeccable release, entitled Bob Stewart: Then and Now (also available for download), Bob Stewart accomplishes his mission by creating an impressive album that connects the Jazz music of old to today, and in doing so helps thrust the Tuba and its bold, passionate echo back into the Jazz consciousness.
