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.

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.
