Rascher piece for jazz

2024 Views 15 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  Roger Aldridge
This may sound weird, but using a soft, jazz-cut reed with a Sigurd Rascher piece has a great jazz sound (on alto). It really sounds like a big edgy tenor down low, but still has plenty of cut in the high register. IMO, it would be perfect for a big band. The only problem I have is that once you get to around forte-fortissimo loud, it's impossible to blow any harder. What do you guys think?

Yeah...considering his stance that the brighter French sound was incorrect to Adolphe Sax's intentions, I've always wondered what he thought of guys like David Sanborn...
He probably thought Sanborn played electric guitar.
