Re: Best saxophonists and their best recordings
Check out some of John Edward Kelly's more recent recordings, such as John Edward Kelly "Alone" and Contemporary Music for saxophone Volume 2, with Bob Versteegh on piano. Exquisite playing coupled with a wonderfully pure, rich sound. His earlier stuff is good also, its just that the recording engineering makes it sound like he is in a living room, far away and dry; its hard to get an accurate perception of the depth that is inherent in his sound. I believe you could find these on Amazon or at Classicsax.com. In the same vein, you might try Harry White. Wonderful alto player and one the most expressive players I've experienced.
