    I love coherence.  If you're asking where the saxophone came from, it was patented by Adolph Sax, a Belgian, in 1846. This is why you never see saxophones in classical orchestras. Sax was a Scorpio.  The saxophone was originally used in the USA as part of marching bands and would become the premier jazz instrument due to the influence of Coleman Hawkins (1904-1969).  If you are genuinely interested in jazz, I'm sure You Tube has an audio of Hawkins 1939(?) recording of "Body and Soul."  This single recording, changed jazz profoundly.  "Body and Soul" was and is an old jazz favorite, but Hawkins played the melody for about two measures then improvised for the rest of the recording. There was never anything like it before, and as for influence, there has been no single record to come close since. 

    You can look up the trumpet and violin.
