The saxophone, named after its inventor, the Frenchman Adolphe Sax, began its all-conquering journey as a jazz instrument in the 1920s, and is still omnipresent today. In Sax Giuseppe Pino portrays the most famous saxophonists, thus paying homage to an instrument and its inventor who did not live to see the success and heyday of his creation. Music CDs: Four CDs with legendary recordings by many of the artists depicted round out the portrait and make the book a must-have for all saxophone and jazz fans.

About the Author
Giuseppe Pino is Milanese, with roots in Sicily, Switzerland, and France. In spite of his reputation in the photography world, his exhibitions and books are so few and far between: the wider audience knows him only as a refined portraitist and an extraordinary observer of the jazz universe. But in four decades he has kept his style intact while working in different genres: nudes, fashion, advertising, corporate image, including A.D. A recurring feature in his images, portraits, or otherwise is irony, together with naturalness (not much), lots of surrealism, and today, even a bit of sarcasm.
