Re: What are your favorite sax solos?
For a couple of days, I've been listening to an album by Steve Wilkerson. The title cut on the album is "Shaw 'Nuff", but the solo work on every piece seems very good to me. He happens to be playing bari on this album, but I believe any player would be inspired by his command of the instrument. He never seems to repeat himself, he seems to be all over the instrument, and at times he strings together an absolute blizzard of notes. Yet, it all sounds very easy on the ears to me. He obviously has superlative technical chops, and a particularly good sense of how to work through the chords. In spite of the occasional lightning pace, he makes it all 'lay' very nicely over the rest of the band at all times. Check it out!
