I played bari sax in HS, in concert and jazz bands. Loved it! I was a percussion major in college, but I also played bari in jazz ensemble there as well.  I'd love to see bari saxes and all other

Tough crowd.

That’s why, even during the pandemic, sax education remains critical.

What the group is performing is nothing that hasn’t been tried before.

One can only pray that the bari-sax remains  “side-lined”.

No Mike, not at all.

I really appreciated what you posted.  A brass section like that is never to be ignored and I loved their contribution.  It was reminiscent of brass lines from popular tunes from years by. 

As for the bari sax with above comments, I have played bari sax numerous times.  At first it was a complete oxygen depriving head rush, but in the end it was amazing to play. 

Funny how the flute is actually more demanding than the Bari Sax.  I have played both.  The flute nearly made me pass out.

Thank you for the post.  I've now listened to it a few times.

Can I just have the brass & rhythm section without all of the bulls*^t?  But then again, I can't really decipher any of the lyrics.  This chart almost has a "Kashmir" feel; they do rock, but who mixed this track?  "It's got a good beat & it's easy to dance to." - American Bandstand

:dancin:

Kashmir you say?

I don't think folks realize how much air it takes for a great flute tone.  But it's the clarinet for me; I have a post-headache anytime I have to pick up that instrument.  🤕

Indeed.

I was tenor sax for marching in High School but often swapped between that and Bari for orchestra (to double bassoon parts) and jazz ensemble.  Bari is a blast to play when you get the lungs for it.  We had one number in jazz band that our director wanted the entire frontline to go flute/clarinet for and I borrowed a friend's flute for that and got a fingering chart to work it out.  THAT surprised me on how much air it took to maintain tone, and how different the embouchure required was.

The friend I borrowed the flute from just laughed and went back to her piccolo
