Check out the video on The History of the Saxophone.
Collective Cadenza (CDZA) was a New York City based band that did some incredible videos on the history of music and musical instruments. They are quite entertaining. Alas, they haven't made any more since 2014, rumored in part to have secured full time gigs in other bands. All the videos are worth a watch and hold their value well. Their YouTube channel can be found at https://www.youtube.com/user/collectivecadenza
