John Linnell (Bari Sax on the early (read: GREAT) They Might Be Giants albums)
Andy MacKay of Roxy Music
Lee Thompson of Madness
King Curtis for the Fillmore live version of "Whiter Shade of Pale" alone
Johnny Colla (If you grew up in the 1980s, you owned a copy of Sports. Even if you're not Patrick Bateman.)
Michael "Tunes" Antunes (aka Clarence Clemons Lite, given the context of the band he plays with)

What are some good John Coltrane albums?

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 8, 2013 3:19:39 AM PST
Blue Train, Giant Steps, My Favorite Things, and A Love Supreme are generally considered "the big 4." I also highly like Coltrane Jazz, Coltrane's Sound, Coltrane Plays the Blues, and Soultrane.

I saw Tom Scott tear it up once...a show I didn't want to go to but my friend had just broken up with the chick he was I went.
Great opener too. Some unknown guy on a 12 string accoustic guitar who stood on one foot most of the time. Not a single vocal from either one that night. Awesome show...

@Dave vicks.....

They're all good, but some of them are pretty out there. BrownFingersDibbity gave a great list to start with and I would add 'Afro Blue Impressions' for a fantastic live album of some of his best stuff.

viva...sounds like a great Stones heavy set !

Three names for me: Clarence Clemons, Branford Marsalis, and the guy who plays sax on Pink Floyd's "The Final Cut." That howl of pain on "Two Suns In the Sunset" - best album closing solo ever!

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 9, 2013 12:10:51 AM PST
Raphael Ravenscroft plays on Two Suns....He is also the man behind Gerry Rafferty's Baker Street...yep....

Thanks - I'll have to check out some Ravenscroft outside of that Floyd performance - memorable stuff!

My favorite saxaphone solo (I know that's not what you asked), is in "Shine On You Crazy Diamond, Part 1(?)", by Pink Floyd, on the "Wish You Were Here" album. I also like the saxaphone in Traffic music (I don't know the sax player name).
