Following the outstanding success of The History of the Clarinet, Clarinet Classics is proud to present The History of the Saxophone.

‘From the Laurel-and-Hardy-soundtrakishness of The Six Browne Brothers’ "Moaning Saxophone Rag" to
Paul Schrader’s Mishima, it’s all here. You need this CD, it’s a gem.’
The Independent on Sunday
It includes a 20,000 word essay on the history of the saxophone written by the eminent saxophonist and leader of The Delta Saxophone Quartet, Stephen Cottrell.

Using a wide variety of musical examples from the saxophone in the 19th century by Combelle and Marcel Mule, jazz players Sidney Bechet, Charlie Parker and John Coltrane to the saxophone in the modern age including Stephen Cottrell and London Saxophonic. This important release presents a colourful guide to the saxophone from its invention by Adolphe Sax in the 19th century through its development and use in many different musical styles in the 20th Century.

Invaluable to both students and players alike, this new release will also be of interest to the general music lover wishing to increase their knowledge of the saxophone and its repertoire.
