The Sax & Brass Book
The Sex & Brass Book presents a fresh and exciting view of jazz and pop by blending together the stories of the music, the musicians and their musical instruments into a new and stimulating whole. Great names from the past - from Louis Armstrong to Miles Davis and Charlie Parker to John Coltrane - lead on to modern jazz as well as a look at rock, funk, ska, soul and country ... in fact virtually any popular music with saxophones, trumpets or trombones. As well as this fascinating story, The Sax & Brass Book offers a unique photographic collection of fine and rare musical instruments and printed memorabilia, and a detailed directory of instrument makers.
