Striving to play the changes in a melodic way.
Years ago I had a chance to buy a Triebert bass sax. Triebert was a famous maker of Bassoons and Oboes that eventually was incorporated into Couesnon around 1880. It wasn't a very satisfying play and the instrument wasn't keyed high or low enough for my tastes. So I let it go and eventually purchased a lovely Buescher bass sax that needed some work. I've recently heard that Couesnon stopped making the bass sax in the '80s.
