Tom Crail

I'm a native Austin Bassist/Tuba player and teacher. I play primarily with the Jackie Myers Band these days. I'm also involved in several other side projects including big bands, and smaller jazz combos around Austin, TX. I worked in jazz trio's on the Holland America Line's cruise ships for a number of years. I love playing music.

Clinic/Workshop Information

I've taught Low-brass clinics based on the teachings of the Breathing Gym in schools, mainly to marching bands since about 2008. I gained a lot of this knowledge from my time spent playing tuba for the Concord Blue Devils Drum & Bugle Corps out of Concord, CA.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
