 Make Up Your Mind" with Clarence Williams, Louis Armstrong,, and Eva
 Taylor circa November 11, 1924 with Louis playing a delightful obbligato
 to Bechet's low note foray. (Okeh label)
 I believe this is the only recording of jazz sarousaphone.

     Well, almost.  Reed player Scott Robinson made a CD a couple of years 
ago using a sarusaphone, bass saxophone, and other hard-to-find instruments.  
Check out "Thinking Big," (Arbors Jazz ARCD-19179).  The cover photo alone 
migh get you hooked.  Look up the details about it at:
