The alto saxophone belongs to the woodwind family of instruments, and was invented in 1840 by Adolphe Sax, an instrument maker from Belgium. His initial intention was to create an instrument that would bridge the gap between the woodwind and brass instrument families - something that was powerful, but adaptive. The instrument series is pitched to Bb and Eb, with other versions tuned to C or F never catching on seriously.
Saxophone quartets are usually made up of the 4 members of the saxophone group, that is - Tenor, Soprano, Alto and Baritone. They exist in many forms, both amateur and professional, as well as being taken up in various educational establishments. They usually perform a mix of classical pieces and jazz. Popular saxophone quartets include the 29th Street Saxophone Quartet, Quatuor Habanera, Raschèr Saxophone Quartet, Rova Saxophone Quartet and World Saxophone Quartet.
Saxophonists also perform solo, and are very popular for all manner of events. As well as performing in jazz/rhythm and blues bands, they also perform alongside DJs and for solo recitals, at weddings, corporate events, birthdays and lots of other functions. Many events or function bands (such as funk and soul acts) offer a saxophonist and other brass instruments as a bolt-on to their act, who may also be available to hire alongside a DJ. They are also extremely popular in both rock and pop music, with famous sax players like Clarence "The Big Man" Clemons proving to be an essential member of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, contributing famous parts to hits like "Born To Run" and "Jungleland".
