From the Author:

CELEBRATING THE SAXOPHONE: An Illustrated History
CELEBRATING THE SAXOPHONE is the first book of its kind: a colorful historical tribute to the world's best-loved wind instrument. Saxophonist and popular culture historian Paul Lindemeyer traces the instrument'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. A Hearst Book published by William Morrow & Co., Inc. 96 pages. 155 illustrations. Full color.
