I did not know that Sanborn played on Young Americans, makes sense though, that's some nice playing.

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

Just got chance to listen to a bit of that, it is nice. I will need to take time and listen to the whole thing. The bit of sax I heard was slow long notes which I prefer to some of the quick repetive stuff on some jazz records I have heard. Not knocking jazz just not a big fan (yet) especially the inprov stuff. But then again not being a fan my exposure is limited.

I saw Saborn in '83 on the first show of a 4 concert tour where he recorded the album "Straight to the heart"

Even if you don't like jazz, Sanborn and Hiram Bullock (RIP) rocked back then

Ed, totally agree, Jeff Coffin is the man on sax. All the flecktones are amazing, although as a bass player, Wooten drew me to the band first.

For non-Jazz sax, I personally really like Colin Stetson on Tom Waits' Alice. Some earlier Waits stuff has good sax as well, although maybe that counts as Jazz.

Dire Straits - Your Greatest Trick - intro and exit - Awesome, soulful, sax.

Intro to Morning Dance - Spyrogyra - also very cool ---oops, wait, that is jazz...






I LOVE jazz sax!

Kenny G isn't over-rated, he's extremely talented - he was over PLAYED!
Sanborn kicks ass, as does Koz...

There's actually a Janis Ian Album from the late 70's/early 80's that Clarence does the sax on. Night Rains is the album, and I think he does nearly every cut, but the song "Fly too high" from the first note, it's nearly all him. He's awesome on there.
