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.

heard and enjoyed the sound of a saxophone.
