About the instrument
The saxophone is a relatively new and modern instrument. It was invented by the Belgian instrument maker Adolphe Sax in the 1840s.
Although it is made of brass, it is part of the woodwind family, because it uses a wooden reed to produce sound by vibrating the air (wood-wind).
The saxophone is in the spotlight of many styles of music such as Soul, R’nB, Funk, Pop, and of course, all types of jazz, traditional or modern.
Modern day saxophonists are continuing the legacy of great players of the past such as Coleman Hawkins, Lester Young, Charlie Parker, Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane, Stan Getz, Paul Desmond, Dexter Gordon, Michael Brecker and many-many others.
Following in the footsteps of these giants are today’s Joshua Redman, Branford Marsalis, Chris Potter, David Sanborn, Candy Dulfer, Mindy Abair, Eric Marienthal, Mark Turner, Joe Lovano, Ben Wendel, Bob Reynolds…
All fantastic musicians, definitely worth a listen!
