Played by Jaleel Shaw

The Henri Selmer Paris Alto Supreme is characterized by a perfectly balanced tuning, infinite sound colors, and a great ease of response. It hides the natural and inherent constraints of the saxophone - the playing limitations are non-existent. Its roundness and projection capacity make it an instrument that is both traditional and resolutely modern. The refinement and care taken in its manufacture, as well as its entirely corrected ergonomics, reveal an enjoyment and ease of play that has never been seen before.
