The contrabassoon plays the lowest of the low notes, and doesn't get a lot of time in the limelight. That's why contrabassoonist Allen Savedoff teamed up with arranger Kim Scharnberg to work on a CD that would let the instrument strut its stuff. Host Jacki Lyden speaks with both Savedoff and Scharnberg about the result of their collaboration, Contradiction. (Capstone Records #CPS 8696, www.capstonerecords.org)
