Anybody who has heard of Tommy Johnson has my undying admiration (and a guaranteed spot inperpetuity on any pub quiz team that I am a member of).John Thomas Johnson, who sadly passed away inOctober of 2006, was an American orchestral tubaplayer. In all, Johnson played on more than 2,000
lm soundtracks and became Hollywood's 'rst-call'
tuba player after his debut performance on the scorefor
 Al Capone
in 1958. The list of his lm credits is
a veritable treasure trove of classic celluloid:
TheGodfather, Back To The Future, The Matrix,
the
Indiana Jones
series, the rst ve
Police Academy 
 movies, and
Cats and Dogs
, starring Jeff Goldblum andElizabeth Perkins, to name but a few. Johnson alsoplayed his tuba for the TV series
The Flintstones
.In 1975, Johnson received a call from John Williams (the composer, not the ShadowStatscompiler, I hasten to add), who asked him if he was available to play on the latest score that
Williams had composed, for a collaboration with a young director shooting his fth movie — anadaptation of a best-selling novel by Peter Benchley that had been published in February 1974and caused a sensation, remaining rmly entrenched on the bestseller list for 44 weeks.
The rights to the movie had been bought prior to its publication by Richard D. Zanuck and DavidBrown, who happened to read a draft version and clearly had an eye for a hit.The movie was released to great critical acclaim on June 20, 1975; and it marked a watershed
in movie history, becoming the rst 'summer blockbuster' and setting the trend for a slew of big
'event' movie releases, hyped and built up over months, whose debuts in the world's cinemaswere timed to coincide with the long, lazy days of vacation season.The young director in question was Steven Spielberg. The movie was
 Jaws
.According to an interview Johnson gave in 2004 to one of my favourite (though sadly no longeroperational) websites, tubanews.com (the leading tuba news site on the net), on the day hewas slated to record the 'voice' of the shark, he arrived late at the studio and, upon opening hismusic, found himself faced with a strange passage in a high register which he felt seemed moreappropriate for the French horn.Williams told Johnson that he wanted something that sounded 'a little more threatening' for the'voice' of the shark.Job done.
