it kind of sounds like it is played in Klesmer(bad spelling I'm sure) Music. Is it?

Hey GemmyF, thanks for the listen. Sopranino is a specialty of mine. A much maligned little beastie.

I don't know why-it is so cool--Do you know those guys--The Decemberists--I could hear that instrument with their music.

I've used the sopranino for Klezmer, but the traditional instrument is clarinet. The (natural) range of a clarinet is more extensive than the sax. The sopranino can reach all of the top notes of a clarinet, and that's where the clarinet usually plays in Klezmer. Thus the similarity (and I obviously don't play sax in very traditional way).

Don't know the Decemberists...will check out. Thanks.

Checked them out. Not exactly what I expected. Folk with a strong Irish influence. Good musicians and tunes. Yea, I could hear sopranino parts that would work in there. Penny whistle or flute would work equally well.

Well we know Zamzam can come up with something "different" much of the time and fun grooves. I'm just tagging along for the ride. Cheers!

I still remember when I played on this track of ZamZam, the scale which came to my ear was a progression of A minor aeolian, B locrian and so on...even now playing on your notes, also they match these scales without alterations ... alike I get confused, but my ear that tells me :)

Got to admit that although I know theory I never do any sort of analysis of what's happening. Just use my ear to try and fit/match. Analysis or reading chord notation can box you into just running lines in that structure. It's relatively easy for me to hear a melodic line which may also run outside of the "theoretical" structure. I've learned to trust my ears more than theory even though I may wind up playing correctly (in theory). Using notation and theory can work if you can't hear those lines. For me it's a limitation, or worse, and impediment.

well, actually I play by ear, but I always like to meet on that scale I am, for the construction of the licks, another way I think that I would be a disaster, at least thus learned to make the reading of the songs :)
