Scott Robinson was the reed player at this past weekend's Summit Jazz
concert in Denver. For one song, he played an odd-looking instrument I'd
never heard of before: an octavin. Here's a picture of it -- look for
"octavin" on this link.
A very interesting instrument, sounding a little like a soprano sax. Scott
said the fingering is much like an Albert system clarinet. I had never seen
or even heard of an "octavin" before. Does anyone know anything octavins?
