German vernacular love songs of the 12th- to 15th-centuries, generally in two sections, the first repeated, the second not although the formal love song is the most common type found in Minnesang at all periods, but there were also others: Botenlied address to a messenger the lady or the man reveal to a messenger emotions that, by convention, could not be expressed directly to the beloved Kreuzlied crusading song this song does not usually tell of a crusade and its hardships, but rather of the pain caused by leaving the beloved behind Wechsel conversation song this song represents an actual conversation between two lovers, but often convention is served by making the conversation take place in a dream.

A watchman cries that dawn has come; the lovers are in danger from spies sent by a jealous husband or perhaps from a less successful suitor. The stress is on the feelings of the woman rather than those of the man, and there is no attempt to idealize the situation. The form was not popular with German poets since there are few examples of it in early lyric poetry, and even after Romance traditions became established, resorting to a dreamlike setting seemed to be preferable to an explicit portrayal in the Romance vein Pastourelle pastoral song from the Occitan pastorella, the pastourelle was a poetic genre that was popular throughout France in the 12th and 13th centuries.

Set in the countryside, a man discovers and attempts to seduce a young woman, usually a shepherdess. The poem includes both narrative the man’s point of view , and dialogue. In this way it contrasts with the conventions of courtly love by having the object of desire being not a noble lady where social constraints dictate events, but a commoner, with the less refined associations that would be drawn by the listener Minneliet Middle High German Minnelied Minnesang German m.

City Noir — John Adams In jazz and popular music[ edit ] Saxophones are also commonly used in jazz music , where it is one of the signature sounds, as well as an iconic image used to denote the style. Beginning in the early 20th century, saxophones became popular in dance orchestras, which were not jazz ensembles but influenced the format of the big swing era bands that were soon to follow. The arrival of the saxophone as a jazz instrument is attributed to tenor saxophonist Coleman Hawkins ‘ stint with the Fletcher Henderson Orchestra starting in The saxophone was soon embraced by Chicago -style musicians who added it, along with chordal instruments such as pianos, banjos, and guitars, to the trumpet-clarinet-trombone-bass-drums ensemble format inherited from New Orleans jazz.

The swing bands of the s utilized arrangements of saxophone and brass sections playing off each other in call-response patterns. The influence of tenor saxophonist Lester Young with the Count Basie Orchestra in the late s and the tremendous popularity of Coleman Hawkins’ recording of ” Body and Soul ” marked the saxophone as an influence on jazz equal to that of the trumpet, which had been the defining instrument of jazz since its beginnings in New Orleans. But the greatest influence of the saxophone on jazz was to occur a few years later, as alto saxophonist Charlie Parker became an icon of the bebop revolution that influenced generations of jazz musicians.

The small-group format of bebop and post-bebop jazz ensembles, typically with one to three lead instruments, usually including a saxophone, a chordal instrument, bass, and drums, gained ascendancy in the s as musicians emphasized extended exploration utilizing the new harmonic and melodic freedoms that Charlie Parker and a few others, such as Dizzy Gillespie , Thelonious Monk , and Bud Powell pioneered. In addition to the brilliance and virtuosity of Parker, the alto sax was also popularized in the s by top saxophonists such as Sonny Stitt , Cannonball Adderley , Sonny Criss and Paul Desmond of the Dave Brubeck Quartet.

The baritone sax, featured more in big bands notably by Harry Carney in the Duke Ellington Orchestra and larger ensembles than as a solo instrument, was popularized in jazz as a solo instrument within small groups by musicians such as Serge Chaloff , Gerry Mulligan , Pepper Adams and Leo Parker. The soprano saxophone was popularized by Sidney Bechet in early jazz, but then largely fell out of favor with the greater emphasis on section playing during the s.

Steve Lacy renewed attention to the soprano in the context of modern jazz during the s and John Coltrane boosted the instrument’s popularity during the s. Popular smooth jazz and contemporary pop musician Kenny G also uses the soprano sax as his principal instrument. Saxophonists such as John Coltrane , Ornette Coleman , Sam Rivers and Pharoah Sanders again defined the forefront of creative exploration with the avant-garde movement of the s.

Send me some reed money. An inexpensive nickel-plated flute has a tone lacking in character and brilliance, but a fine silver flute sounds, well, silvery! It has a tone that sparkles, that sings, that carries to the back of the concert hall. The most discriminating flutists might opt for the more luxuriant timbres of white, yellow, or rose gold, or even the rare and weighty quality of platinum. And any self-respecting oboist or clarinetist would refuse to even consider an instrument made of lifeless black plastic.

Only the finest aged African blackwood can provide the dark, rich, woody tone that a true artist requires. And fine saxophones, though most often made from brass and lacquered in a gold color, can be special-ordered in silver or even gold plate, which, saxophonists just know, bestow a unique sonic personality.

Some saxophonists are willing to pay a premium for certain hard-to-find French instruments made in the decade following World War II, which are reported to be made from melted-down artillery shell casings, and to have a correspondingly powerful quality of tone. It seems to many musicians a self-evident truth that premium materials produce a premium sound. Unsurprisingly, the scientific view has not been popular with the woodwind-playing crowd.

Most have invested thousands of dollars in their personal instruments made from the rarest woods and shiniest jewelry metals. Most have been taught the subtleties of instrument selection by wise and respected teachers, and have dutifully passed the knowledge on to their own generations of students.

A seldom seen quality horn with many interesting features from an enigmatic manufacturer Now this is a rare beast! SML saxes always seem to attract a lot of attention – some of it good, some of it not so good. In some ways that pretty much sums up my feelings about this particular horn – it’s a curious mix of the old and the new, with features that delight and disappoint in equal measure. SML seem to have had a chequered history, and much of this has to do with the relative secrecy that seems to surround the company.

To this end, it’s hard to be sure about dating these horns from their serial numbers to my knowledge, SML have never published a list of numbers , and there’s some speculation that some SML horns weren’t even made by them.
