About Saxophone Jazz Radio

The Saxophone Jazz is one of the online radio stations where the broadcast without words can tell you more than the person himself. The uniqueness of the saxophone is that a smooth and multifaceted simple instrument can plunge you into the atmosphere of what is happening that it seems it is not music, but a human voice. That is why Saxophone Jazz has become so popular with the common people and the musicians themselves, who can now speak with their listeners in their own language. Show more

The saxophone burst into the broadcasting of many European radio stations in the early 20s with a new version of the favorite style. This moment very quickly “reset” the significance of the trumpet and cornet that were usual up to that time. They were owned by the great black founders of jazz motifs, but with the playing of the saxophone, the whites stood out. They began to please with a completely unusual style of playing, which could not have been created on another instrument. Smoothness, fluency, fusion of performance, which for the first time led radio lovers away from typical African “tricks”: hardening the sound, excessive mobility of accents and the classic ground beat. Adrian Rollini, Jimmy Dorsey, Frankie Trumbauer were the first to achieve technical perfection and the ability to implement the most complex technical turns on the saxophone, whose experience is now adopted by hundreds of other talented musicians. This wave of the online radio will introduce you each of them. Collapse
