The baritone saxophone or "bari sax" is one of the larger members of the saxophone family, only being smaller than the bass, contrabass and subcontrabass saxophones. It is larger than the tenor, alto and soprano saxophones, which are the other commonly found members of the family.

This is a split album dedicated to the lost innovators of the baritone saxophone. Leo Parker did release a small handful of albums on Blue Note, although Melvin "Sax" Gill is more obscure (perhaps more known for his session work, if that). They both play a style of jazz that is post-big band, pre-bebop, the jump in the juke joint that was a precursor to R&B and rock'n'roll. The liner notes in the booklet more thorough about their careers. Leo Parker - Leo Leaps In (Take 3) 08. Sax Gill - Crisco Jump 09. Sax Gill - Dancer's Delight 10. Sax Gill - Shortening Bread 11.

Leo Parker played in Jacquet's group in 1947 and picked up some of Jacquet's stylistic devices, like riding on one note for quite a while and suddenly descending to the bottom regions of the horn. These traits are used by both baritone saxophonists on this disk. Leo Parker's tracks are the more succesful ones; Leo is the superior improviser and his musical ideas are quite logical even when using the lowest notes of his horn. His group sounds quite tight in their execution of the tunes, and an unnamed tenor saxophonist and anonymous pianist also get short solos.

Leo Parker was the proud owner of a big, beefy baritone sax tone and a fluent technique that struck a great match between the gritty, down-home feeling of RB and the advanced harmonies of bebop. At first, he studied alto in high school, even recording with Coleman Hawkins' early bebop band at age 18 on that instrument in 1944. But upon joining the legendary Billy Eckstine bop band in 1944-1945 and 1946, Parker switched to baritone and began to garner notice. Leo Parker - Rollin& With Leo ( Full Album ).
