Six musicians are in a circle in the living room — on one side, trumpet and trombone; on the other, cello, viola and violin; and in the middle, the elephant in the room — Stewart's tuba.<p>The musicians are rehearsing for a concert at Lincoln Center at the end of September; it's a release party for Stewart's new album, <em>Connections: Mind the Gap</em>. The band is a double quartet — a classical string quartet, along with Stewart's jazz band of 25 years.
