    Hello all,

    I haven't posted or surfed this forum for a while, I've been too busy :( , so I'm not sure if this has been posted. It's a history of the sax, broken into three parts. The link provided is for the Tenor sax part. Sypnosis: A piano player and saxophonist give a short run through of the styles of the big three; Hawkins, Young and Webster. I really loved it, mainly due to the fact that they had a sax playing. Hope you all enjoy, if you navigate the page further you find stuff on Dexter, Basie etc etc. Once again sorry if this has already been posted. I just wanted to post this because I loved it.

    Tenor:

    Sadly, it wouldn't play. I think it's only available to UK viewers.
