I have the same problem as reedsplinter -- I'd be going for the first altissimo A and play the second (an octave higher). I think this comes from playing tenor and hearing what you expect from that horn, instead of the bari. Or breath control (which is geared towards the tenor). I'm playing an open, high baffle, mouthpiece so that I can be heard. The overtones and altissimo are easy to produce but hard to control (it's a 70's Bundy bari, by the way (no low A)). I keep working on it. Working on the bari altissimo/overtones is helping with the same on the tenor, but it doesn't seem to work the other way around (not yet, anyway).
