(October 30, 1922 – July 22, 2004)[1] was an American jazz tenor saxophonist, best remembered for his solo on "Flying Home", critically recognized as the first R&B saxophone solo.[2] Although he was a pioneer of the honking tenor saxophone that became a regular feature of jazz playing and a hallmark of early rock and roll, Jacquet was a skilled and melodic improviser, both on up-tempo tunes and ballads. He doubled on the bassoon, one of only a few jazz musicians to use the instrument.Contents1 Early life 2 Career 3 Influence 4 Discography4.1 As leader 4.2 As sideman5 References 6 External linksEarly life[edit] Jacquet was born to a Black Creole mother and father, named Marguerite Trahan and Gilbert Jacquet,[3] in Louisiana and moved to Houston, Texas, as an infant, and was raised there as one of six siblings.

Audio Mastering
Mastering, a form of audio post production, is the process of preparing and transferring recorded audio from a source containing the final mix to a data storage device (the master); the source from which all copies will be produced (via methods such as pressing, duplication or replication). In recent years digital masters have become usual, although analog masters, such as audio tapes, are still being used by the manufacturing industry, notably by a few engineers who have chosen to specialize in analog mastering. Mastering requires critical listening; however, software tools exist to facilitate the process. Results still depend upon the intent of the engineer, the accuracy of the speaker monitors, and the listening environment
