Other Comments: The Saxmen is a unique
saxophone duo, featuring Leo Hall on alto sax and Vince Newton on tenor
sax. That’s right, it’s just two men playing saxes, but with
sound of an eight-piece combo! Their instrumental jazz, swing, Latin tunes
and standards create energized and entertaining background music. The two
saxes are self-accompanied by synthesized rhythm section, providing the
sound of a large jazz group, but requiring only a fraction of the space
For dancing, the Duo can be augmented by adding a female jazz vocalist. Musical
selections include favorite hits of Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, and the music
of Duke Ellington, George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Henry Mancini and many more.
The Saxmen is a popular entertainment choice for parties, dances and fundraisers,
as well as for enjoyable background music for cocktail parties and dinners.
