I normally restrict my rants to the baritone saxophone and post them on this site. But over the last few years I’ve been tackling the bass saxophone. Its been quite challenging. I’ve also learned a lot about it. Most baritonists seem to appreciate a good low end, so I thought I’d share an article I recently wrote. It was published in the WAVE (We Are Vandoren E-Newsletter) today.
It covers a bit of the history of the bass saxophone, both the players as well as the instrument itself. There are also a number of video examples and it covers a lot of the modern practitioners of the horn. So if you have any interest in learning a little about the bass saxophone, head on over and give it a read.
