Territorial Airwaves - "Slack Sax" - 3/09/2012

Adolphe Sax of Belgium invented the saxophone in Paris in 1842.

Adolphe Sax then re-tooled the military bad format by replacing the oboe, bassoons, and French horns, with saxophones, producing a more homogenous sound.

American musicians had picked up the sax by 1896.

In Hawaii, Johnny Noble’s Moana Hotel Orchestra incorporated the sax in Hawaiian music in 1920.

By the 1930s, Hawaiian bands featured the saxophone on every island.

Join us now for “Slack Sax”, as we share a memorable 1984 recording in tribute to Hawaii’s love of the saxophone!
