Saxophone Players


Saxophone Players. We want them. There must be hundreds if not thousands of sax players out there. There is no doubt if I tried to do a definitve list someone would say what about xxxxx! To which I'd probably say "Oh xxxx! I forgot them!"

With that in mind you can make your own recommendations

There are few criteria to follow

Please don't nominate young Tommy from down the road who played 3 blind mice for you once

They must be recognised as a known sax player

We would also like to know who they've played with and any songs/tunes we might know because of them

It would also be good to know why you think the sax player you recommended should be in the list

Follow the above and we will make sure your comment is added to saxophone players
