History of the Saxophone Video by Ben Flocks

I had to share this!  Saxophonist Ben Flocks has made a video that takes us through 150 years of saxophone history in about 10 minutes!  This was posted on Youtube in 2014 but somehow I have missed it for the last two years.  This is not a boring lecture but a musical performance where he goes through the most famous solos played by the best sax players of the last 150 years.   I don’t know Ben Flocks, but he has done his homework for this video that is for sure!  I was amazed at how well he morphed from sample to sample with all these styles and different saxophones!   Well done!  It’s made my night! Thanks to Ben Flocks and CDZA for making this great video!
