Last week we had a taste of some ‘foreign’ sax and it was well received, so I did a quick scan through my iTunes and came up with these. I know there’s many ‘giants’ missing and there’s some repetition but it was a quick selection from a lot of ‘favorites’ folders. Just a note re.the various types of sax, the most common ones used are the soprano, the alto, the tenor and the baritone, I’ll list who plays what on this playlist.

They’re all favorites and I can’t narrow ‘em down any further. As usual Woordpress is acting silly, this week they’re randomly inserting the word ‘amp’ into the titles, can’t get rid of it.
