“Probably everything you wanted to know about the sax – and then some” – Jazz Times
“A fascinating and colorful book...A fine gift for music lovers” – Billboard
“Intelligently written, vividly illustrated...certain to delight all devotees of the instrument” – Saxophone Journal

CELEBRATING THE SAXOPHONE is the first book of its kind: a colorful historical tribute to the world's best-loved wind instrument. Saxophonist and music historian Paul Lindemeyer traces the horn's development from 1840s Paris, where Adolphe Sax invented the horn that bears his name, through the Jazz Age and Swing Era that made saxophones a household word, to the varied jazz, pop and classical music scenes of today.

Along the way are many rare illustrations and photographs – some never before published. Included are capsule biographies of sax greats, a section on the instrument family and its construction, and samples of the saxophone's presence in art and consumer culture. CELEBRATING THE SAXOPHONE is a book for anyone who has ever heard and enjoyed the sound of a saxophone.

Published by William Morrow & Co., Inc. 96 pages. 155 illustrations. Full color.
