KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Former President Clinton has donated the saxophone he played at his inauguration to the American Jazz Museum.
The attraction is part of the historic 18th and Vine district, where musicians often play into the early morning at an old union hall called the Mutual Musicians Foundation.
"Though he may have been unable to hang in a jam session at the Mutual Musicians Foundation, he is the only leader of the free world to be a jazz musician, and I know he would have loved the chance to sit in on a set," Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., said in a statement Thursday announcing the donation.
Cleaver also said the federal budget just passed by Congress includes $312,000 for the museum to spend on education programs, new exhibits and the restoration of its collection of jazz films.
The saxophone, which is expected to be handed over in a public ceremony Friday, had been in the collection of Clinton's presidential library in Little Rock, Ark.

Jazz should have different vowel!
Which museum gets the cigar?
Hope they disinfected it first!
Wonder how much of a tax deduction the Toons’ll take for it?

You can’t believe a word that man says, so how do they know if it really is the ‘saxophone’ former President Clinton played at his inauguration?
Any word from the cigar museum?
He played the thing about as well as he saluted. What a loon.
While he blew on the sax, Monica was blowing on . . . . .
Charlie Parker is turning over in his grave at this very minute.
Close ... sexaphone to the jizz museum.
And where did he send the “cigar”?
Depends on what the word 'blow' is.....
Great, they can add a new wing to the jazz museum for Clinton’s saxophone and all of Kenneth Gorelick’s fake ass jazz albums.
Where are the semen stained blue dress and cigar on display?
Now if he would just donate himself to the dust bin of history.
Bill Clinton has the playing talent of a 1st year school band saxophonist. Perhaps I should donate my old Pop Warner jersey to the Football Hall of Fame.
“he is the only leader of the free world to be a jazz musician, and I know he would have loved the chance to sit in on a set,” Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., said in a statement Thursday announcing the donation. “
Now he’s a jazz musician? Give me a break. I hate that the Clintons have to be everything: musicians, great skiers without lessons, smartest people in the universe. Every day is another day to pat themselves on the back about how wonderful they are.
Exactly - he’s a mediocre player at best - and a hack in reality.
I have to take my hat off to Bubba as a sax player. I think he might actually have been the first President who was literally so horny he honked.
My thoughts exactly. Also,knowing the toon, how do we know that it is even his or one he bought at Wal-Mart.
People call Kenny Gorelick one, so why not Clinton?
I also said Bill Clinton was the second worst thing to ever happen to the saxophone. Kenny G was the worst. My teacher differed; He thought anything that brought more popularity to the saxophone was good. I strongly disagreed.
My new favorite band, or at least my new favorite band name:
...And yes, I have a Dead Kenny G’s T-shirt.
Cool, nice to see there is another freeper here that hates Gorelick as much I do. I have been know to go to stores and make his albums harder to find by flipping over the big name tag that shows where his albums are so it is blank. Or turning his albums around so you can’t see his face or his name in big print. I also hide them behind real jazz albums.
WOW!! What a guy! Now I think I’ll vote for his wife.
(Full sarcasm mode)
Does the museum have an autoclave.
Slick will probably use this as a $20 million tax deduction.
