Bass & Baritone Saxophones
Dan Oestreicher chose for the baritone saxophone to be his primary instrument at a young age, a unique endeavor for the woodwind department which is typically filled with multi-instrumentalists who hold a belief that in jazz one must be proficient at least three of the staple woodwinds in order to get gigs and make a living. Dan Oestreicher proves us all wrong. He stayed true to his love for the bari throughout his studies at the Loyola University College of Music, under the mentorship of bassist James Singleton, and as a member of Trombone Shorty's Orleans Avenue horn section. Oestreicher can be found holding down the low end of the Naked Orchestra, who is proud to have him as their leading bari-sax man.
