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?
