As in funeral processions "When the saints go marching in"Tuba in Jazz.( Derived from Wiki)
The tuba has been used in jazz the genre's inception. In the earliest years, bands often used a tuba for outdoor playing and a double bass for indoor performances. In this context, the tuba was sometimes called "brass bass", as opposed to the double bass, which was called "string bass
It gave way to Double bass early on in "Big band music" I find the Double bass is the best for really punching a rhythm whereas the Tuba is rather Brass Band kind of thingThe tuba has also played a large role in ragtime music and in big band music.

Without more response I dont think I will want to continue myself.

The second jazz oboe player I found is Paul McCandless. This man is a true multi-instrumentalist. Not only does he play oboe, but also English horn, soprano saxophone, sopranino saxophone, bass clarinet and a variety of folk flutes. He is the leader of a group called Oregon.
