22-117 THE HISTORY OF THE TENOR SAXOPHONE IN JAZZ (NEW)

Randy Greene, Fridays, 10 to 12 noon

Cactus Room: February 25, March 4, 11, 18, 25, April 1

The tenor saxophone has been one of the key instruments in jazz. In a sense, the evolution of tenor saxophone style has been a microcosm of the development of jazz from the swing era (1930’s) to the present. This course will highlight the major jazz saxophonists in roughly chronological order, focusing on the style of each and their contributions to the development of jazz.  Some of the musicians we will listen to and discuss are Coleman Hawkins, Lester Young, Ben Webster, Dexter Gordon, Stan Getz, Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane, Wayne Shorter, and Chris Potter.
