Ornette Coleman, the alto saxophonist and composer who was one of the most powerful and contentious innovators in the history of jazz, died on Thursday in Manhattan. He was 85.

The cause was cardiac arrest, a family representative said.

Mr. Coleman widened the options in jazz and helped change its course. Partly through his example in the late 1950s and early 60s, jazz became less beholden to the rules of harmony and rhythm while gaining more distance from the American songbook repertoire.

Congratulations to Jean-Patrick BESINGRAND!

Airlines are ringing in the new year with a rule that standardizes how musical instruments are handled on flights.

The Transportation Department finalized the rule Tuesday that requires airlines to allow small instruments such as guitars or violins as carry-on bags in overhead storage or under seats.

The long-awaited rule, which Congress ordered in a Federal Aviation Administration law in February 2012, anticipated possible discord if an instrument occupies space that could otherwise accommodate two or three carry on bags.

Can you make a 3D-printed saxophone that's a fraction as heavy as a "normal" one but sounds, to the untrained ear, virtually the same? Yes. I mean, you probably couldn't, but luthier Olaf Diegel has done exactly that. Diegel took a break from making high-end 3D-printed guitars and tried his hand at the complex key structure of an alto saxophone, producing a prototype that's made almost entirely of printed plastic.

Marcel-Mule-486-wpcf 300x222

Marcel Mule (24 June 1901 – 18 December 2001) was a French classical saxophonist.

Marcel Mule was known worldwide as one of the great classical saxophonists, and many pieces were written for him, premiered by him, and arranged by him. Many of these pieces have become staples in the classical saxophone repertoire.

Circo du soleilWIND INSTRUMENTS

We're looking for a wide variety of experienced brass and woodwind instrumentalists with a creative spirit who are passionate about live performance, excellent at improvisation and able to play more than one instrument. We need very good musicians who can play various cultural styles or take us on a journey through time. If you play a non-traditional or long-forgotten instrument, we'd love to hear about it!

PLOT: Adolphe Sax (1814-1894) was one of the most accomplished inventors of the nineteenth century in the music field. The improvements of the bass clarinet, the brass instrument designs, and of course the saxophone’s invention are the best examples of his creativity.

Really interesting Article!

La silla de madera con respaldo parece catapultar al intérprete sobre el teclado; el cuerpo ligeramente encorvado a su izquierda; las partituras desparramadas por el suelo

On March 14th, 2013, the European Commission published a proposal to revise regulations 261/2004/EC1 and 2027/97/EC2 dealing with airline passengers' rights. The proposal addresses, for the first time, the specific issue of artists travelling on planes with musical instruments, which represents a huge step forward for professional musicians. In a nutshell, it “compels air carriers to accept small instruments inside the passenger cabin, subject to certain conditions, and to clarify their rules with regard to the carriage of larger instruments in the cargo compartment3”.
