A Saxophone Lesson in Harlem – Jason Marshall on Baritone Sax

“I have been entrusted with an aptitude for music so that I can be about the work of wellness in my community and in my environment.  That work includes restoring our subconscious and super-subconscious memory, reacquainting with our original customs and languages; restoring and developing our intrinsic culture.  I gather the pieces of our fractured history together in the vibrations of our ancestors that we might fashion an accurate map of the way forward. Together.”

“For me, it’s the most expressive, bass clef instrument” – Jason Marshall

People are always asking me for more bari sax content. So back in February of 2020 I went to NY to visit my good friend Jason Marshall. He’s one of the top bari players on the music scene today.

Jason is an authority on baritone saxophone. I got a ton of valuable information out of our conversation and I’m sure you will too.

If you have questions about saxophone sound, using your air, articulation, gear, what bari sax players to listen to, tips for playing in a big band saxophone section, or even low B flat versus low A bari saxes, vintage horns versus new horns and more, you’re in the right place.

PLUS if you want Jason’s altissimo fingerings for bari sax, watch the video below.

Be sure to also visit https://jasonmarshalljazz.com for Jason’s recordings and performance updates.

Let me know what you thought of this interview in the comments below! I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did.
