I will second Sinfonia's response of Jim Pugh.  The New York Pops just came into the area and did a Tribute to the Dorseys and a tribute to Skitch Henderson, their conductor who founded the Pops, but died like a week or 2 before the concert.  Jim Pugh played the role of Tommy Dorsey.  I was an usher for it and got to sit about 15 ft behind the string bass players, so I was up close and personal to most of the orchestra compared to most of the other 1300 people there.  He played like none other I've ever heard before.  I could not believe my ears after he played.  He soared through the sky with his high notes, his low notes were crisp and clean, and he even incorporated some multiphonics that gave that section of the music and eerie quality, but sounded awesome.  I was astounded.  If I could ever sound half as good as that guy during my lifetime, I'd be happy with myself.  It was just that amazing.

And on a side note, I didnt get to talk to, but I got to stand pretty darn close to the son and daughter of Tommy Dorsey!!!!!!

A lesser known classical (and jazz sometimes) trombonist that I dig is Larry Zalkind the principal of the Utah Symphony. Beautiful, Big sound; everything impeccably executed.  I can recommend one of his CD's "Encore" on the Summit label that is excellent.

Another ensemble you might be interested in checking out is Bones Apart, a female trombone quartet - they have a lovely sound.

Actually Nitzan has been at Mannes and Manhattan School recently.  He has been rehearsing with Haim Avitsur and Dave Taylor.  I think they are getting ready to record an album of trombone trios.  My favorite trombone sounds are Charlie Vernon, Steve Norrell, Nitzan Haroz, Joe Alessi, Dick Shearer, Dave Taylor (especially his Sinatra and Absolute recordings).  The first time I heard all these guys play LIVE it was life changing--Pat

I  had the chance to listen to Michel Bequet a couple of times during the eighties.In my opinion(!!);if tone quality alone matters; He`s number one with Joe Alessi number two with a slight distance down to number three (which I cant make up my mind who is).
As for bass; Charlie Vernon ,Doug Yeo and of course George Roberts(why isn`t he on everybodys list??)George Flynn and John Engelkes also deserves mentioning! Oh, and Wim Becu(sp?), bass sackbut!

IMO, any top notch orchestral player these days has good tone.  Theres no way someones winning a job with poor tone.

Gary Valente has really good tone quality!!

Yeah!  And Roswell Rudd too!!!

What is "good" tone quality?  Pretty? Or is it something that speaks to you?

OK OK, so they're not classical players......

Blair Bollinger probably had the most beautiful bass bone sound I've ever heard live.  Mmm mmmm......
