Overview

The History of the Saxophone contains a 20,000 -word essay (with musical examples) on the saxophone by Stephen Cottrell of the Delta Saxophone Quartet that traces the evolution of the instrument from its invention by Adolphe Sax in the mid-1840s through to its prominent use in modern and contemporary jazz, classical and pop formats. Students of the instrument will find this set instructive and interesting. Casual listeners may be better-served by picking up A Love Supreme by John Coltrane.
