Friday night we enjoyed jazz at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art. As normal we enjoyed the music. However, I was especially interested in a couple of comments from the stage which I would like to share. Specifically it was mentioned that “2017 is the 175th anniversary of invention of the saxophone.” Also, another comment was made. Something along the lines of: “John Taylor was president in 1842 when the saxophone was invented. But really, in the course of history, what does it matter who the president was”.
