Baritone saxophone is a term used to describe any horrible looking torture and/or murder weapon from 1392 to 1645. While many consider the baritone saxophone to be merely a giant version of the saxophone, the history of the baritone saxophone is actually much greater and extensive.

In the USSR and Eastern Europe in the 1950s underground night spots would play music pirated from the west. The only media they had were recorders etched into discarded X-ray film.

Serge Chaloff: Sergical

Serge Chaloff, a justly celebrated master of the baritone saxophone, is too rarely heard today. Here is a track from Chaloff’s album Boston Blow-Up!, recorded in April 1955, with Chaloff leading a sextet of fellow Bostonians: Herb Pomeroy, trumpet, Boots Mussulli, alto saxophone, Ray Santisi, piano, Everett Evans, bass and Jimmy Zitano, drums. This performance of Sergical also appeared on Mosaic’s out-of-print box set, The Complete Serge Chaloff Sessions.
