A Plastic Sax Party
This is so cool!
B.A.C. Horn Doctor, an Olathe company mentioned here earlier this month, has restored a Grafton saxophone similar to the $144,500 instrument on display at the American Jazz Museum.
In this video, Gerald Dunn auditions it in the presence of Charlie Parker's controversial plastic sax.
In addition to Dunn, the Horn Doctor staff filmed Loren Pickford and Bobby Watson playing the instrument. All three men make the plastic sax sound great.
