    Wow, what a Wookie. Braxton spends more time exercising the keys than blowing.


    I was always amazed watching Pepper Adams -- who was about 5'4" -- wielding a baritone sax that was almost as tall and probably outweighed him.

    More on natural horns. I just discovered Alison Balsom, who plays one!

    Nat Birchall released a Yusef Lateef tribute album last year with some cover versions and some original material. He plays a few unusual instruments as well:
