About The Show! 

“Saxophobia”, a who’s who of sax gone wild, offers your audience a glimpse at some of the most unusual saxophones ever manufactured and pays tribute to a handful of legendary jazz artists who contributed to the development of jazz and the popularity of the sax.   See a tiny curved sopranino, (smallest sax in the world), a six and one half foot tall contrabass (largest) and virtually everything in between including a straight tenor, C Melody, Grafton plastic alto, Conn-O-Sax, slide saxophone, bass sax, and an original 1880 Adolphe Sax made by the inventor himself.  Presented as a solo act or in a jazz format with piano, bass and drums, the show explores over a half century of classic jazz melodies associated with this warmly embraced and versatile musical instrument.  Who could forget Boot’s Randolph honking out “Yakety Sax”, the wispy tones of Plas Johnson playing the “Pink Panther Theme”, Charlie Parker carving out innovative bebop melodies such as “Scrapple From The Apple”, or the warm, breathy tone of Stan Getz’s classic “The Girl From Ipanema”.  Add a bit of Dexter Gordon, Johnny Hodges, Jimmy Dorsey, Paul Desmond, Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane and others and you’ve got an entertaining and historical performance which tells you everything you wanted to know about sax but were afraid to ask!
