Subject: Paul Cohen's vintage saxophone revisited

Hi Contrabass people!

Recently I bought Paul Cohen's Vintage Saxophones ReVisited, and I STRONGLY recommend it for ANYONE who likes saxophones. It has some of the RAREST saxes on earth on this CD. And, the information is great, too! It starts out introducing the saxophone to us, and then gives you a sound sample of one of the earliest saxophone recordings. Mostly, this is how is goes, but then, it changes, and starts showing us the instruments themself. Ever heard of a slide soprano saxophone? It sounds REALLY cool. But, what might be the best part of the CD is the track with the contrabass and soprano feature. It is so beautifully played, has a soft tone for the first minute, and then it speads up. This is the best feature with contrabass I have ever heard, and I have many CD's with contrabass sax on it. This is a MUST have for anyone that has ever wanted to hear a contrabass sax. You'll get your money's worth! ***** five stars and two thumbs up!

In other news, I was wondering if anyone out there wanted contrabass sax info or pictures. I have plenty of both. If you want, check out my website, The Sax site , it has lots of pictures (I kinda cut down on the CB info, due to the limited webspace that the weirdos at aol gave me), but oh well. Still a cool site.
