Default Saxophone Solos

Bruce Springsteen is in town and although I really only care for his first few albums and only listen to him when listening to the radio but they just played "Jungleland" and I have to say that is one of my favorite sax solos. Not complex, just something very special about it. I love saxophone solos. Anyone have their favorites? Some others I may enjoy? Pink Floyd has some good ones too. Odd thing is I am not a fan of Jazz. NRBQ has a great short sax solo on one of their songs but I am not sure of the name. "Breathless" maybe? If anyone knows the song is that a baritone sax? I love the way it goes all the way from very low notes to the very highest.

I was just going to post a link to "Baker Street", but this site is much more comprehensive.

Clarence Clemens is a very cool dude, but sometimes his style just doesn't do it for me. I'm not into jazz at all either, but I sure like a good sax solo too. I like the sax solo on Foreigner's "Urgent". Simple, but nice.

One of my favorites is in Buddy Rich's "Channel One Suite"

This led me to YoUTube where of course some Kenny G was brought up. is that guy serious!! His videos would serve as a parody of himself on SNL!

That was pretty much a list of most songs I don't like, sadly they had sax solos in them.



I guess the Jungleland solo is more my taste. Odd that was not on the list.

As a dedicated Coltrane fan, I declare A Love Supreme trumps all.

I wouldn't say there's a particular solo that stands out, but if you like sax but don't like straight-up jazz you should check out Morphine.

All I found on you tube was this:



Pretty cool but no sax.
