  1. Hello Bob.

    Welcome to my site.

    Thank you very much for these images, as well as the ones you emailed to me. I do very much appreciate them.

    I love to look back into time and see how the saxophone was “marketed” as it were, back in the day. I think it was much interesting than anything we have now.

    Today’s saxophone imagery tends to much more stylized, and realism in only used on the occasional album cover.

    I just spent a couple of hours in a music store today, and happened to be looking through the sheet music and books. The only time you see a saxophone on the cover, is if it’s a saxophone method or song book. Compared to the sheet music covers of yesteryear, today’s are downright bland… IMHO of course.

    I’m not suggesting that we go back to the 1920s, but the period surely had a lot going for it when it came to the promotion of our instrument. At least in the sax-happy 20s, most people knew what a saxophone was. Today… I’m not so sure. 😉 :saxy:
