From Planet Soprillo “The World’s Smallest Sax Quartet”

Randy Emerick


Randy Emerick regales us with what is billed as “The world’s smallest saxophone quartet” with Soprillo, Eb sopranino, Bb soprano, and Eb alto playing a standard SATB sax quartet. Listen to it here: BlueSkies.mp3.

Soprillogy Randy Emerick is a professional woodwind doubler. His experience includes classical music with the Florida Symphonic Pops of Boca Raton and the Palm Beach Pops, playing clarinet, bass clarinet, and all saxophones.

He has also recorded with the jazz ensembles of Jaco Pastorius and the Impact of Brass. In addition he has performed with artists of all styles including Frank Sinatra, Liza Minnelli, Sammy Davis Jr., The Four Tops, Crystal Gayle and many others.

There are so many different ways to serve up the saxophone world. And most people can’t tell the difference in sound or site between an alto or a tenor sax. But the soprillo has been my hardest challenge to date. And whenever I pick it up the dawgs head for the door.  :o)
