In this case beyond is the Fluba, a Self-designed tuba-size flugel horn.

My America is a 17-track tour of musical Americana--Camptown Races, My

Flying Machine, Old Homes. America The Beautiful-- featuring the

Fluba.  Arranged , conducted and produced by Kim Scharnberg,

My America swings brightly as Self, with a cast of solid session players, his

sense of humor, and the Fluba, works the music from top to bottom.

Cat in the Hat and Chicago.
