What the hell is that thing?

After Tin Hat’s opening song, clarinetist Ben Goldberg reached down, opened up a case, and pulled out something that looked like some kind of steampunk plumbing device.

I was sitting at a table with several other musicians, and we all turned to each other with the same quizzical look.

It turns out that it was a contra-alto clarinet, and it produced a low, woody sound that seemed perfectly appropriate for the next song, “Dead Season,” on a Halloween night.
