Quinn said Broad, but not very deep.. As an obsessive saxophone fan, I was really looking forward to this book. It's a good "coffee table" book with nice pictures and the writing is generally pretty good. The problem is that they tried to cover so many players in this overview that most artists, including some bona-fide greats like Dexter Gordon, Hank Mobley and Wayne Shorter get only a few paragraphs a piece and lesser k. masters of jazz saxophones minus one good photos, good write-ups and pretty extensive, but while including many young, up-and-coming players, it neglects to mention one, who is hardly "up-and-coming" any more and most certainly among the most important modern players, namely, Kenny Garrett. Having been playing since he was a teen with the Duke Elington Orchestra, he moved on to the likes of Art Blakey, Woody Shaw, Freddi. "serious omissions." according to A Customer. Tony Coe,s picture is on the cover yet there is nothing inside about this ex Clarke-Boland sideman who was the first non American to win the Jazzpar("Jazz Nobel") prize andplayed the tenor sax solo on most of the Pink Panther filmsplus plus.Also missing is British Nigel Hitchcock who canblow anyone away. Although an acceptable coffee table book,it is defective for the above omissions
