Can’t you just sniff it in the air? Yes, of course, it’s that magical time of the year as Saxophone Day 2010 looms upon us.
For those of you who don’t know, this coming Saturday, November 6 is “Saxophone Day” – or the day that Adolphe Sax, the inventor of the saxophone was born.
Rather than bore you all to tears with a history of the instrument, I’d like to instead offer you some much more important information that you’ll need to arm yourself with for this weekend’s festivities.
