The Saxophone is a member of the woodwind family of instruments, despite its almost all-brass (or other form of metal) exterior. Plays on a single reed. Invented in the mid-1800's by Adolphe Sax. Typically regarded as a jazz instrument, but has found its way into many a concert Band. _Has_ crept its way into some orchestral pieces like Bizet's "L'Arlessiene".
