Jon Sass is known for being a creative and a true bass groove master on the tuba. He can be heard on over 70 recordings in several different musical genres. To diversify his vocabulary of articulations, Sass uses vocal percussion. This is an important aspect of the playing and is usually compared to the 'slap' sound on the bass guitar.
