SAXOPHOBIA – The Show

“Saxophobia” brings to the stage a rare and unique glimpse at some of the most unusual saxophones ever manufactured and the classic melodies that popularized this warmly embraced and versatile musical instrument. The show explores over a half century of jazz classics and recognizes the musical contributions of such artists as Stan Getz, Sidney Bechet, Charlie Parker, Paul Desmond, Gerry Mulligan, John Coltrane, Frankie Trambauer, Rudy Weideoft and others. Audiences will be introduced to over a dozen variations of Adolphe Sax’s 1846 invention including a curved sopranino, plastic alto, straight tenor, connosax, slide sax, bass and even a rare 6 ft contrabass sax.
