All That ‘Cool’ Jazz! Once More With Feeling!

Variations on a theme:

A dumb one at that! But Lionel Hamster is such a ‘cool’ and clever dude! And ‘soulful’ to boot!

It all started with Adolphe Sax, a Belgian instrument inventor. In 1842, he attached a clarinet mouthpiece to a brass creation and named it the saxophone … Now, it is a staple instrument in jazz and also has a role in music genres ranging from classical to pop. May 24, 2019

  • Louis Armstrong – “Man, all music is folk music. You ain’t never heard no horse sing a song, have you?”
  • Louis Armstrong – “Hot can be cool & cool can be hot & each can be both. But hot or cool man, Jazz is Jazz.”

Don’t you think this is a tad overdone when it comes to a plain saxophone?
