Ward Baxter’s “The Grinch”

imageDSCF0653This year as part of the holiday concert, the Woodinville Community Band performed Ward Baxter’s “the Grinch”. I am lucky enough to be able to do it on an Eppelsheim bass sax that is keyed to low A. Standard bass saxes are keyed to low Bb. With Eppelsheim’s redesigned instrument, I am able to play the full range of the instrument without resorting to the alternate fingering that was necessary with the original instrument.

Here is a copy of the performance for my family and friends who couldn’t make the concert. Enjoy.
