Altissimo Baritone, Sayyd Abdul al-Khabbyr

From about minute 3:20 but listen to the whole thing cause it's fantastic

I wish I could ply my alto this high

I once did a few gigs with a ska band called Mark Foggo's Skanksters, who had a baritone player who could overblow it to sound like a soprano (or otherwise' altissim-ize' it.... remarkable, I've never heard anything quite like it, except- possibly- bits of james carter)

Nice vid!

I think a lot of the high stuff he was playing was actually tense mouthpiece/reed control rather than fingered altissimo though.

I loved Mark Foggo's Skasters..back in the day:D

In a new ska band myself in 1992 we covered the very catchy numbers Hello (ska people) and Wierdo's
