Last night, Ed Goldstein, a tuba player in Baltimore, passed away after a lengthy battle with cancer. He was a student of Arnold Jacobs and a major figure in the Mid-Atlantic as a faculty member at the Peabody institute, founding member of the Peabody Jazz Ensemble, founder of Baltimore TubaChristmas, principal with Annapolis Symphony Orchestra and recording session and live musician on MANY gigs around here for decades. I am sure there are folks on this forum who have a connection to him. He was the person who got me to return to playing euphonium when I thought it was pointless.
