    Thumbs up Required Listening; Sopranino, Bass, C Melody and/or all else

    Thanks to 64sax's request, we MUST do this one more time

    I'm mostly interested in sopranino players and recordings if any exist. Someone has gotta have a handle on one of those little beasts! Also, bass, contrabass, C sop, C Melody.... It just goes on and on and on and on....

    Isn't sax fun

    Let the sax choir sing!

    Jay C. Easton's "So Low" is a wonderful recording of bass, contrabass, and subcontrabass.

    Janos Vazsonyi's "Shades of Bach" features a great duet of sopranino+alto on Bach's The Musical Offering.

    Paul Cohen's "Vintage Saxophones Revisited" has recordings of some unusual saxes.

    Hi guys,

    I've been a long time lurker here and thought I'd come out of the closet on this one. The Nuclear Whales Saxophone Orchestra uses sopranino and contrabass in their recordings. You can hear streaming audio from their website.

    Wessell Anderson plays sopranino. His CD "Warmdaddy in the Garden of Swing" has a couple of "nino" tracks. His Vanguard CD has one. He plays it on Wynton Marsalis' "A Week at the Village Vanuard" and probably plays in on ther Marsalis/Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestr recordings.

    Cool!

    I am especially interested in C-melody tenor (and C-sop) recordings – both the essential classics and any contemporary magic.

    Ta in advance!

    Check out Bix (Beiderbecke, cornet) and Tram (Frank Trumbauer, C-Mel) for good C-Mel and bass saxophone work . . . early jazz, but very inventive. Specifically, SINGIN' THE BLUES, GOOSE PIMPLES, and TRUMBOLOGY. DAVE

    That site is cool. That guy should record some of those teenage ringtones that the teachers and parents can't hear.

    Cool

    Has no one heard of Anthony Braxton? He plays a mean sopranino and contra-bass Clarinet as well if you're into that. How about Peter Brotzmann?
    He's the man in Europe for bass sax. Or are these references too far out for sax on the web?
