I was listening to The Move and digging that Bari Sax sound...

California Man - The Move

Also, some say that the Bari Sax was the Distorted Guitar before Distorted Guitar was a thing! :)

Rocket 88 (Original Version) - Ike Turner/Jackie Brenston

I’ve been playing bari sax for just over a year now. I bought it because it’s in Eb, one octave lower than my alto sax, which also is in Eb, so I can use the same transpositions and get those lower notes when needed. It has an A key so its lowest actual sound is the C below bottom E on the guitar. I fell in love with the bari sax straight out of the box.

At the moment I’m working on a six piece band performance of Duodenum, with bari sax playing the lead. On Lumpy Gravy, it’s in G Dorian, with various chromatic alterations. FZ wrote it in E Dorian, but sped up the recording by a minor third. I’m loving the serendipity of playing this on the sax in E to get G. I’m effectively playing the lead melody a major sixth lower than the original and it sounds fantastic.

One of my favourite bari sax solos is Mel Collins in Peoria on the Earthbound album and it certainly kicks at least as much arse as Fripp’s guitar solo, which is also one of my favourite guitar solos. Neither of these guys was overstating their case and that’s the way I like solos in general.

I've never actually had sex with a baritone, although I do occasionally have this fantasy involving Bryn Terfel singing the lead in Sweeney Todd.

Wait, what was the thread title?

Sleepy - I was gonna ask for more details, but looked up Bryn Terfel and changed my mind. Some fantasy life ya got there.

That is definitely a tenor sax.

It's coming along nicely, thanks - alongside the other fifty hundred things I'm working on. I've pretty much got the bari sax part down, but I still have to finalise and rehearse the other parts and then work on the production.

A special mention to the bari sax on Turn Up Your Radio by The Master's Apprentices.
