The warm sound of the tenor saxophone has come to be the symbol of jazz - largely because of the work of Charles Yardbird Parker, Long Tall Dexter Gordon, The Hawk Coleman Hawkins, and the immortal John Coltrane. On the Jazz at Lincoln Center Stage, three generations of modern day tenor masters -- Benny Golson, Bennie Maupin, and musical director Joe Lovano -- honor this legacy. Wendell Pierce hosts.
