    Just to put the baritone sax in perspective!

    From Quora.com.

    "I'm glad you asked! It's hard to sound great on the baritone saxophone, compared to the other saxophones, for a few reasons. First, it's just larger. It's heavier and harder to wield, and the keys are a bit farther apart. It also takes significantly more air to produce a sound. Second, because it's deeper, and because the airstream is wider, it's harder to get a clear tone; it often sounds fuzzy and lacks an edge. Even played perfectly, it has a gritty kind of sound that's not to everybody's taste (though I love it). Furthermore, in that low range it's harder to tell notes apart. Try pounding on the keys at the bottom end of a piano to see what I mean. Fast chromatic passages that sound exciting on other saxophones often sound muddy and indistinct on a baritone."

            Checked out Hammiett Bluiett - Libation For The Baritone Saxophone Nation on Tidal.
            Reminds me of Ray Brown's Super Bass, but with Baritone Saxophones.

              The World Saxophone Quartet, of which he is a founding member, is always a great listen…so long as you can handle excursions into free jazz.

                Yes familiar with the World Saxophone Quartet, but did not realize Hammiett Bluiett was a founding member.
                Thank you

                  I believe Boots Randolph played the Tenor Saxophone.

                    Though not jazz and he was no Gerry Mulligan, Dick Parry was always enjoyable with Pink Floyd. Does that count?
