The Martin Band Instrument Company’s frontman for many years. He was seen on several advertisements. Tex Beneke is most known as saxplayer in Glenn Millers orchestra. After Millers death Beneke was one of the persons who continued with the Glenn Miller band and developed the sound as well. So Beneke was important for the Miller sound.

On this Youtube clip Tex Beneke is the tenorplayer to the left (soloing). I think he is on a Martin Handcraft tenor.

Most saxplayers have been into “In the Mood”, Chattanooga Choo Choo….. .
