Unless the word "over-rated" is used in that sentence.

What can I say, I like good music.

Just found it on youtube. Sounds like they cut out one of Buddy's solos around 8:08 though. Still, a great song, and my favorite drummer, second to Steve Gadd.

The first slow solo is around 2:50 and continues off and on until 5:00. They kick it up a notch around 5:15 on a sax only solo until around 6:45.

Almost half of the second part of this live version is the sax solo too

Ha, don't know why I didn't think about this. How about Jeff Coffin of Bela Fleck? I saw him play in a small bar in downtown Greenville with Jeff Sipe. There were about 30 people there. He did things on the saxophone I didn't think were possible. Between Sipe and Coffin, I had my mind blown that night.

Ok, I found the one you are talking about but for some reason this one has the same title but appears to be an entirely different song.

My first thought was Mel Collins' solo in The Stones "Miss You"

They sure got a lot of great sax players to guest on their songs including Bobby Keys on "Brown Sugar" and Sonny Rollins on "Waiting On A Friend"...

Steely Dan is in the same vein - hire the best guys in the biz to guest on your songs.

Dick Parry's work with Pink Floyd is top notch: "Money" and "Us and Them" from DSOTM, and he's all over the "Wish You Were Here" album.

David Bowie plays a little sax himself, but he got David Sanborn to play the unforgettable solo on "Young Americans".

Sipe and Coffin are both total badasses! I've seen (and recorded) each of them perform in a couple different bands but never together.
