The Saxophone That Ate the World

How I love unusual musical instruments!


Meet the subcontrabass saxophone. The low notes are at the limit of human hearing and it stands three metres tall. Remember to pay proper respect or that massive bell will swallow you whole! The following is a jazz concert starring Italian saxophonist Atilio Berni.



Also follow this link to see Atilio playing a range of novelty saxophones. Also a definite must-see.
