Everything we talk about the saxophone, it's always about being on the margin, working its way in from the outside.
It's on the margin of the orchestra, on the edge of polite society, on the fringe of serious music.
It's a troublemaker and a nonconformist, which is why it represents opportunity and freedom to so many people and why it's the soul of nontraditional music.
