its a very tough one, I don't know of may videos of good jazz sopranino playing.

In a classical context these will be David Hernando Vitores ( great player he plays very well all manner of unusual saxophones).

Here's a few:

I have several hundred more. Is there a particular style that you're after?

These are all improvisations over backing tracks that are originals. I also play other saxes, but have a love the little beast and seeing how many ways I can make it fit various styles.

PM me if you want more information or tracks.

Thanks so much for your vote of confidence Milandro. I took the OP's request in saying "Video/Audio" to mean either is OK. I don't think anyone needs to see my old mug! For me a video needs to be saying something besides here is the face that goes with the sound. Random pictures that have nothing to do with the music aren't that great either. The early (cheap) Pop Music Videos are pretty awful, especially in trying to make the musicians seem sexy/glamorous. The videos worth seeing cost mega $$. Not likely to happen unless someone is doing a video (unbeknownst to me) of a performance...and those are getting to be pretty rare.

Wessell "Warmdaddy" Anderson: "Warmdaddy in the Garden of Swing."
Kenny Garrett: "Simply Said"
Farrell Vernon: "Convergence," "The Forgotten Saxophone," and "High Notes." All classical, very nice playing, great tone.

Several Anthony Braxton and Roscoe Mitchell albums have 'nino.

My personal favorite sopranino feature is Matthieu Metzger as half of the duo Rhizottome. Sopranino/accordion duo, blend of French folk, classical, jazz, including improvisation. Neat concept.

EDIT: I feel that "sopranino player" suggests players who play 'nino extensively. As such, the only above listed players I'd really count as "sopranino players" would be Farrell Vernon and Matthieu Metzger. Maybe Braxton.

Roscoe Mitchell (also of the Art Ensemble of Chicago) :


...this is a very particular musical vision, of course not everyone's taste. I've seen Roscoe play this way live -- circular breathing and chaotic harmonics -- it was extremely powerful. Roscoe is so underrated.
