conducted by Sunil Sampat
The Art of Jazz Saxophone
An NCPA Presentation

Did you know that while the saxophone is closely associated with the sound of jazz, it became part of mainstream jazz by sheer accident? Or that the soprano saxophone, favoured by Sidney Bechet in the 1930s, vanished from the jazz scene until John Coltrane brought it back 30 years later? Relive these and other stories and experience rare jazz footage when Sunil Sampat speaks of the jazz saxophone.


Admission on a first-come-first-served basis. NCPA Members will get preferential seating till 5.20 pm.
