Tonight, bass trombonist Phil Teele passed. He was a mainstay in the Hollywood studio community for 6 decades and was a total original as a musician and person.
He pioneered the use of the big contrabass trombone in film music

A toast for this contribution 🍷 Could you point to some examples of it? I wonder what can be done with this rather rare bird

Well, very obvious examples are in anything by Goldenthal like this ending.

 

And this from Batman which Phil played on...definitely a tremendous low blow.

 

Low brass really cuts through and it would have been amazing to hear this stuff live.  It probably must have felt like an earthquake.  Also, Phil was very prominent around town and in educational/pedagogical circles having written texts and method books for low brass players.  I have some of them and have seen them in many practice rooms across the country.
